Welcome to QuEST LAB

The QuEST LAB is a research consortium of spatial and quantitative ecologists dedicated to the management and conservation of wildlife from individuals to communities and their associated landscapes. Consistent with the mission of a Land Grant university, we emphasize partnerships with natural resource agencies, organizations, and private landowners to:

Conduct cutting-edge research to understand, conserve and manage populations, biodiversity, and ecosystem integrity

Disseminate knowledge to stakeholders and assist state and federal agencies, NGO’s and landowners by providing rigorous research products to inform scientifically-based strategic planning efforts

Train undergraduate and graduate students and early- to mid-career professionals in spatial and quantitative methodologies
