Professor, Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology
In collaboration with his graduate students and post-docs, Barry Noon’s research focuses on conservation planning for threatened and endangered species; science-based management of public lands to conserve biological diversity; population dynamics and viability analyses for at-risk species; and vertebrate demography and life history. For over three decades his research has emphasized the management of forest ecosystems to sustain biological diversity with a particular focus on spotted owls and other imperiled species. He also works extensively at the interface between science and policy formulation on public lands in the U.S including service on two federal advisory committees and a National Research Council panel. Noon’s teaching focuses on the application of quantitative methods to the design and analysis of ecological studies.
