Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology
The strength of UW-Madison’s graduate programs in Forest and Wildlife Ecology is based on an internationally recognized faculty, and on the excellence of supporting disciplines, including agricultural and applied economics, botany, statistics, soil science, zoology and others required for the development of a broad graduate curriculum.
The Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology offers two distinct graduate programs, MS and PhD degrees in Forestry and MS and PhD degrees in Wildlife Ecology. Each program has its own area of expertise and faculty advisors (though some interests and faculty advisors can be found in both). Students need to make certain that they are applying for the correct program based on their research interests and the research interests of the advisor with whom they are applying to work.
SOME OF THE AREAS OF EXPERTISE FOR WILDLIFE ECOLOGY INCLUDE:
- Wildlife population dynamics
- Physiological ecology and ecotoxicology
- Conservation genetics and biology
- Ecology and management of game, non-game and endangered species
