Dr. Dan MacNulty is an Associate Professor in the Department of Wildland Resources at Utah State University. He has a Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior and a M.S. in Wildlife Conservation from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and a B.A. in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder. He conducts research at the interface animal behavior, population biology, and community ecology to address basic and applied questions in animal ecology and conservation. He has studied large mammals in Yellowstone National Park since 1995, and much of his research centers on understanding and clarifying the ecological consequences of wolf reintroduction as part of several long-term, collaborative studies of carnivores, ungulates, and woody deciduous plants in northern Yellowstone. His research also explores the effects of climate change on large mammals including the impacts of warming on moose population dynamics in northern Utah and wolf-ungulate interactions in the high Arctic.
