Graduation Year: 
After Humboldt, Eric went on for a PhD at the University of Wisconsin and then on to be a professor at Cal State LA.

  For his Humboldt thesis, Eric used state-of-the-art presence/absence occupancy modeling to examine habitat relationships of songbirds in blue oak woodlands. He tested the capacity for standardized vegetation data collected by the California Native Plant Society to predict bird distribution over a broad spatial extent.
