I am an avian ecologist and study birds (particularly migratory songbirds) in upland and bottomland forest ecoystems and use observational and experimental field studies to address ecological questions and conservation issues. A primary focus of my research has been determining how habitat features and landscape composition affect nest predation and brood parasitism in breeding birds. My work in bottomland forests has also documented how hydrological restoration of forested wetlands affects breeding bird communities. Another major focus of my research has been studying brood-parasite/host interactions and their ecological and evolutionary ramifications. Finally, my long-term work on Prothonotary Warblers has addressed behavioral decision rules for site fidelity, natal philopatry and first-year survival, density dependent reproductive output, and the effects of a warming climate on the timing of breeding.

Dr. Maness is an Associate Professor and Environmental Science Program Coordinator at Louisiana Tech University.Her research group attempts to explain the structure and function of organisms in terms of their ecology and evolutionary history. Our approach is integrative, encompassing behavioral ecology, conservation, demography, endocrinology, immunology, and toxicology.

I am the Unit Leader of the USGS Florida Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. Before that, I served as an Assistant Unit Leader of the Alaska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit for 15 years. My graduate students and I work on a variety of research in avian ecology, mostly with an applied focus. I have worked a lot with species of conservation concern and have a particular affinity for working with shorebirds. However, my work has spanned over many avian taxa including eiders, ravens, passerines, and long-legged waders.

Mississippi State University

Scott Rush is an Associate Professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Aquaculture at Mississippi State University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia (2009) where his research focused on indicators of ecosystem properties within northern Gulf of Mexico tidal marshes. His post-doctoral training, completed at The University of Windsor's (Windsor, Ontario) Great Lakes' Institute for Environmental Research, addressed changes in energy mobility through Great Lakes ecosystems. Now at Mississippi State University, Scott and his students continue to work within an expanding research framework incorporating novel technologies and chemical tracers to address features of landscape and trophic ecology relative to wildlife populations. Some current work strives to understand the effects of climate change on avian population regulation, and management of ecological communities supporting threatened and endangered species, especially within the context of human-wildlife conflicts.
