Members of the Crawford Lab explore a variety of questions related to wildlife ecology and animal physiology. Research conducted in our lab is suited to student researchers that are pursuing careers in wildlife sciences, veterinary practice, or human medicine.  We test hypotheses using the latest technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS) to map wild animal populations, GoPro video camera technology to record animal behavior and metabolic chambers to measure respiratory dynamics. The ultimate goal of research in our lab is to present and publish scientific studies that help “move the needle” on our understanding of animal ecology and physiology. We also seek to broaden that understanding to inform human health care practices as appropriate.
