Important spatial ecology questions remain unanswered for two subspecies of elk in California, the Roosevelt and tule elk. For my thesis work I’m studying how these unique elk populations balance the need for forage, water, predator avoidance, and respond to human land-use. I’ll be using a resource selection function framework to determine how these factors influence habitat selection and how habitat selection varies seasonally. My goal is to assist wildlife managers better understand how these elk populations use their environments and to map areas of high habitat suitability.
