Behavioral ecology of avian migration; wildlife and habitat relationships and conservation; natural resource modeling with statistics, Geographic Information System (GIS), and remotely acquired data.
Dr. Wang’s recent research efforts include (1) stopover ecology of migratory birds at the southern Cumberland Plateau of northern Alabama; (2) wildlife (amphibians, reptiles and birds) response to anthropogenic habitat and landscape alternations such as forest management practices and urbanization; (3) breeding distribution and biology of Cerulean Warblers; (4) classification of land types for forest management based on GIS, remotely sensed data and statistical models; and (5) avian biology and conservation in China. Dr. Wang’s research has been supported by organizations or agencies such as NSF, USDA, Forest Service, EPA, State of Alabama, TNC, and private landowners.
