About

http://bisonjeff.weebly.com My name is Jeff Martin. I really only deal with animals, and mammals at that, but I do occasionally work with reptiles, amphibians, and select invertebrates. By training, I'm a vertebrate paleontologist, paleoecologist, and a bison rancher from Wisconsin. My favorite things that I do include macerating (de-fleshing) animals for osteological comparison, woodworking, working on cars, and driving around the country. Some say that I'm bit obsessed with bison, I retort that I'm enthusiastic; you be the judge. My goal is to understand how bison may react to future climate change variability and extremes. My academic training, with my ranching experience, has provided me with knowledge of bison biology and ecology and has prepared me to be an expert in bison research. Understanding bison’s pre-history is critical for sustainable management and conservation of the taxon. Consequently, my long-term goal is to make my results accessible to researchers, bison ranchers, conservationists, managers, and the broader public through outreach efforts, open access scientific articles, and presentations at scientific and industry meetings to ensure the preservation of these animals. To study more about bison and conservation issues pertaining to environment and ecology, I am attending Texas A&M University in the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences with Dr. Perry Barboza as a Doctoral student.
