Jed Murdoch is a wildlife biologist and faculty member in the Wildlife and Fisheries Biology Program at the University of Vermont.
Jed’s research interests focus on the behavior and ecology of wildlife with an emphasis on their management and conservation. Much of his experience has focused on large mammals, including carnivores and ungulates, and explored questions related to how human activities affect wildlife. For example, how do activities such as landscape development, climate change, and hunting/poaching affect wildlife populations? He uses a combination of field studies, experimentation, and modeling to address these questions in a variety of areas including here in Vermont, but also Africa and Asia.
