Consequences of environmental changes on Yellowstone wolves

From 2012 to 2015, I worked as a postdoc with Tim Coulson (first year at the Imperial College of London then at the University of Oxford), in close collaboration with Douglas Smith and Daniel Stahler both in charge of the Yellowstone Wolf Project (and several other American biologists).

In this project, I was trying to understand the ecological and evolutionary consequences of environmental changes (food availability, climate, intra- and inter-specific competition, disease outbreaks) on Yellowstone wolves. I used wolves as a study case to explore how individual traits (such as body weight, coloration, age, sex) can modulate disease dynamics and predator-prey interactions. Most of this work is not published yet… more to come!
