Sam Foster (PhD Student)

Sam is a terrestrial ecologist interested in exploring questions that interface wildlife interactions with agents of landscape disturbance. He is currently exploring how wildfire, logging, and other habitat-modifying agents influence large-mammal-community interactions and ultimately affect mule deer populations in southeastern British Columbia.
