Dr. Stabach’s research focuses on the effects of natural and anthropogenic disturbance on the movements and habitat use of terrestrial mammals. His work combines the inclusion of remotely sensed- and field data-derived variables, incorporated in a Geographic Information System, to relate to the movements of mammals tracked with GPS units to address applied research questions. Jared’s dissertation focuses on the movements, resource use, and hormonal stress levels of white-bearded wildebeest, the dominant herbivore across grassland savannas in eastern and southern Africa. He currently works with Peter Leimgruber and Melissa Songer on the re-introduction of scimitar-horned oryx to the Ouadi Rimé-Ouadi Achim Game Reserve in Chad.
