Tony Javiya, MS Student
Tony completed his MS degree in December 2022. Tony conducted presence-absence surveys of non-native virile crayfish (Faxonius virilis) in the lower Colorado River basin and used species distribution modeling to understand niche dimensions and map habitat suitability. This research is important for the management of this non-native species, which negatively affects the unique and imperiled fauna of invertebrates, fishes, and herps in the Desert Southwest.
James Robbie Carl, MS Student
Robbie completed his MS degree in Summer 2020 in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. Robbie used species distribution modeling to assess how well terrestrial protected areas safeguard the diverse freshwater fish fauna within the Mobile River system.
