Fisheries research emphasis is on the ecology and fisheries of aquatic ecosystems, alteration and contamination of Alaska freshwater and evaluation and development of cold water fisheries techniques. Wildlife research is directed toward ungulate habitat relationships, waterfowl and seabird ecology, wildlife population dynamics and the impact of northern development on wild animals and their habitats.
