List of UMD and NRRI Moose Research Projects

Graduate Students:

Tom Ness. M.S. 2010. Using activity counters to estimate behavior of free-ranging moose. University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Amanda McGraw, Ph.D. in progress. Two years after finishing her M.S. in 2010, Amanda began her Ph.D. research on deer habitat use in moose range. Her M.S. was on Characteristics of Post-Parturition Areas of Moose and Effective Temperature of Cover Types in Moose Home Ranges in Northeast Minnesota. Integrated BioSciences program, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. 
 
William Chen, Ph.D. in progress. Moose, specific topic to be decided. Integrated BioSciences program, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
 
Rachel Ward. M.S. in progress. Measuring Actual and Effective Browse Availability for Moose using a new method in Northeastern Minnesota. Integrated BioSciences program, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Tim Cyr. M.S. in progress. Risk of Parelaphostrongylus tenuis infection to moose (Alces alces) in northeastern Minnesota. Integrated BioSciences program, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Yvette Ibrahim. M.S. in progress. Wolf scat analysis for diet composition. Integrated BioSciences program, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Juliann Terry. M.S. in progress. The habitat and fire ecology of the winter tick (Dermacentor albipictus) in moose (Alces alces) habitat of northeast Minnesota. Integrated BioSciences program, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Trevor Vannatta, M.S. begun 2013. Trevor will be studying aspects of deer-moose-parasite interactions.

Tessa Tjepkes, M.S. begun 2013. Tessa will be studying moose genetics, co-advised with Dr. Jared Strasburg, assistant professor in the Biology Department at UMD.

Jessica Rick, M.S. begun 2013. Jessica will be studying wolf genetics, co-advised with Dr. Jared Strasburg, assistant professor in the Biology Department at UMD.
