NE CSC Welcomes New Postdoctoral Fellow


07/01/2013


Dr. Richard Feldman joined the UMass NE CSC team today. Dr. Feldman’s post-doctoral research will be focused on understanding how best to predict the response of birds to shifts in spatiotemporal variability of the environment. More specifically, he will evaluate the spatial relationships of migratory bird movements throughout the Gulf of Maine and how they are mediated by environmental factors, providing resource managers a tool for assessing effects of potential climate change and wind energy development on bird migration in the Gulf of Maine. His research will have direct relevance to the management of protected areas throughout the Gulf, and he will work with cooperators to develop and deliver outreach materials and activities as a part of the project. This research is a cooperative project between the Schoodic Education and Research Center at Acadia National Park, North Atlantic Coast Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and the Northeast Climate Science Center.
