Agriculture + Life Sciences / Natural Resources (ASSOC-PROF)
Angela Fuller is an associate professor of natural resources in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the unit leader of the New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. She serves on the Faculty Advisory Board of the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability. Research in her lab provides information that contributes to the conservation or management of wildlife species and influences the way species and landscapes are managed. She studies the spatial ecology of species, investigating how spatial landscape patterns influence the distribution, density, or dynamics of animal populations. Much of her focus is on understanding how spatial variation in the environment influences resource use, movements, and population ecology of species. Her lab employs methods for population estimation that incorporate spatial or landscape processes, linking population ecology and landscape ecology.
