Jerod A. Merkle

Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, Department of Zoology and Physiology, University of Wyoming
Jerod is an Assistant Professor of Movement and Migration Ecology in the Zoology and Physiology
Department at University of Wyoming. Jerod’s research is quantitative in nature and seeks to understand how the movement of animals relates to environmental heterogeneity and change, and how these interactions scale to population- and landscape-level ecological processes. Jerod’s primary research foci include migration ecology, fitness consequences of behavior, how cognition and innovation influence foraging behavior, and conservation and management of large mammals. He has a B.S. in Wildlife Resources from University of Arizona, a M.S. in Wildlife Biology from University of Montana, and a Ph.D. in Biology from Université Laval.
