Professor: Natural Resources and the Environment & Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Amanda Rodewald is the Garvin Professor and Director of Conservation Science at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology and in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. She works to generate, apply, and communicate science in ways that advance understanding of ecology and also support conservation. Her research seeks to understand how global change impacts ecosystems across multiple spatiotemporal scales and levels of biological organization and, as such, touches on a variety of sub-disciplines, including conservation biology, community ecology, landscape ecology, population demography, behavioral ecology, and ecological restoration. She tightly integrates her research and outreach efforts to inform policy and management, and as such, regularly interacts with government agencies, conservation organizations, and private landowners. Among her national leadership activities, she has served on the Science Advisory Board of US-EPA.
