Ecological Effects of Snowmachines

I am Tim Mullet, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Biology and Wildlife Department at UAF working under Falk Huettmann. My research focus is to determine how snowmachine activity affects wildlife, the soundscape, and vegetation in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. These findings are helpful for wildlife managers to make informed decisions when dealing with human disturbance and natural resources.

Winter field seasons are cold, dark, and long. Much of my field work lasts from November to April. However, the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge offers spectacular landscapes that make days of data collection in 20 below temperatures worth it.

Thanks to a TAB grant to the Biology & Wildlife Department, the menu-driven statistical software package JMP is now available to UAF students, faculty, and staff through the OIT Downloads portal.  Instructions for using the software can be found at the JMP Learning Library website and within the JMP program by choosing Help/Books/Discovering JMP.  

A new "Advising Alerts" window can be accessed from this webpage by choosing Undergraduates and Advising.

Some important information concerning scholarships offered by the UA Foundation is found here.  All students, please read!
