NC CASC Welcomes Conservations Science Partners Postdoctoral Scientist, Wynne Moss
Wynne is an ecologist and conservation biologist interested in how wild populations respond to environmental stressors, including land use transformation, climate change, and infectious disease. She is currently a postdoctoral scientist with Conservation Science Partners (http://csp-inc.org) , a NC-CASC affiliate. Her postdoctoral research, funded by the National CASC (https://www.usgs.gov/ecosystems/climate-adaptation-science-centers/national-casc?qt-science_support_page_related_con=0#qt-science_support_page_related_con) , uses collaborative science synthesis to better understand the potential for drought to trigger ecological transformation. Previously, she obtained a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado. Her dissertation work examined the interactions between amphibians and the concurrent threats of drought, infectious disease, and invasive species. She also holds a M.S. in Wildlife Ecology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where her master’s research focused on the behavioral responses of mountain lions to increasing urbanization.
