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.
