Hila Shamoon is a landscape ecologist and mammalogist at Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute's Conservation Ecology Center. Shamoon is focused on understanding the role of ecosystem engineers in a human-dominated landscape, and at what scales ecosystem engineers provide desired outcomes to supports ecosystem intactness. This work, in partnership with the American Prairie Reserve, is part of a restoration initiative of North American’s Great Plains.
