Doctoral Degrees

Gregory L. Finstad
Ph.D. Range Ecology: Interdisciplinary Program

B.S., University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1981

Thesis: Applied Range Ecology of Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska
Environmental variation across reindeer ranges of the Seward Peninsula in Alaska was linked to differences in animal production. Reindeer producers can now identify high quality grazing areas and place animals to maximize body weight and rate of gain, thereby increasing meat production and economic development in rural Alaska.
Major Professors: Dr. Norman R. Harris and Dr. Knut Kielland
