Sierra and Savannah successfully defend!

Congratulations to Sierra Robatcek, the final member of the first cohort of graduate students to join the Long Lab, and Savannah Rogers, who worked in the lab both as an undergraduate and a graduate student, for successfully defending their theses this spring! The title of Sierra’s thesis was “Using nutritional-landscape models to predict pregnancy rates of elk across broad spatial scales,” and you can read more about her work here. The title of Savannah’s thesis was “Climatic constraints on energy balance, behavior and spatial distribution of grizzly bears,” and you can read more about her work here.
