Research Scientist / Conservation Ecology Center
His research involves forest ecology issues on public lands in the eastern U.S. and conservation issues in developing countries. McShea’s international work includes large mammal surveys in protected areas and movements of deer and carnivores relative to resources and human impacts. Locally, he works with private and public landowners to restore native habitats and control invasive plant species, and conducts detailed studies of oak forest ecosystems.
