Sage Wisdom Wednesday is a virtual speaker series aimed at getting "just in time" information to BHA leadership. The target audience is BHA chapter leadership, North American Board Members, and staff.
Featured Speaker: Dr. Kevin Monteith
Kevin is an Assistant Professor with the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources and the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in the Department of Zoology and Physiology.
Monteith is highly regarded as one of the world's foremost experts in mule deer, but has built quite the reputation for himself as an expert in all things ungulates. Follow him and his research associates on Instagram @monteith.shop or take your learning to another level by visiting: ungulatecompendium.org
Dr. Monteith's research focuses on integrating nutrition, population, and quantitative ecology to understand behavior, resource allocation, and life history in an effort to reveal the mechanisms underpinning fitness and population dynamics of large mammals. He strives to keep his research program grounded within a strong conceptual framework that builds on ecological theory, and importantly, informs on-the-ground management efforts. Although Kevin's approach to research varies according to study needs, he often employs fairly intensive field studies with longitudinal monitoring of life history and nutritional status of individual animals. Much of his current work is centered on establishing a protocol for habitat-based, sustainable management of ungulate populations, while investigating the effects of predation, climate change, and novel disturbance through the lens of nutrition.
No matter your existing knowledge of ungulates you will find that Kevin has a way of explaining complex topics in a way that is artistically simple. If you don't walk away with life changing thoughts about ungulates from this broadcast, we will refund the cost of admission.
