2024 Robert M. Storm Distinguished Lecture

Daniel T. Blumstein, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Professor in the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA will present Integrating Behavior into Wildlife Conservation Management: A Fearful Perspective

Biomedical scientists realize that fundamental research can be ‘translated’ into clinical success. As behavioral biologists, many of us engage in translational research with a clear wildlife conservation benefit. The field of conservation behavior is explicitly translational in that it translates fundamental advances in behavioral biology to help conserve or manage wildlife populations. I will illustrate how knowledge of antipredator behavior could be used to improve conservation and wildlife management outcomes. My goals are to stimulate others to identify translational benefits in their research and, ultimately, to help humans better coexist with wildlife.

Daniel T. Blumstein is an award-winning Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a Professor in the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA. He’s also the President of the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, which is the site of his long-term marmot work. A Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society, he’s studied behavioral ecology and conservation science throughout the world and has published over 500 scientific papers along with both popular and scientific books. He aims to translate much of his work to popular audiences and works to integrate different disciplines and apply academic knowledge to wildlife conservation, medicine, and security and defense.
