Richard Hutto, Ph.D.
University of Montana
Dr. Hutto has conducted research on migratory landbirds in Mexico in winter, the Southwest during spring and fall, and in the Northern Rockies in summer for more than 30 years. He developed and continues to supervise the USFS Northern Region Landbird Monitoring Program, and he has been studying the ecological effects of fire on bird communities for 20 years.
Mark Harmon, Ph.D.
Oregon State University
Dr. Harmon is the Richardson Chair and Professor in the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University. He is also Co-Director of the Cooperative Chemistry Analytical Laboratory. He earned his Ph.D. in Botany and Plant Pathology at OSU in 1986, then moved to the Department of Forest Science. Dr. Harmon has done research on numerous projects, including the development of methods and models for estimating the stores and fluxes of carbon from forest lands in the Pacific Northwest region.
Thomas Hardy, Ph.D.
Utah State University
Dr. Hardy’s intersecting interests in hydraulic engineering and aquatic biology have led to the development and application of models that provide water resources management guidance. Over a 25-year career, Dr. Hardy has used these models to project the effects of water allocation activities on stream habitat for fishes, other riverine animals, and recreational values.
Healy Hamilton, Ph.D.
Dr. Hamilton is a Senior Research Associate at Sound Science in the Bay Area, with a research focus on biodiversity and ecological forecasting. Her lab integrates spatial data on biodiversity, environment, and climate from both models and observations to understand biological response to global change. The Hamilton lab collaborates with a wide range of conservation organizations and government agencies, providing science in support of adaptation planning in the U.S. and around the globe. Dr. Hamilton is currently a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, a Senior Research Fellow at the Marine Conservation Institute, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Geography at San Francisco State University. Dr. Hamilton received her masters degree from Yale University and her doctorate in Integrative Biology from the University of California at Berkeley. She is a former U.S. Fulbright Fellow and a Switzer Foundation Environmental Leadership Grantee.
Robert E. Gresswell, Ph.D.
US Geological Survey
Dr. Gresswell’s interests concerning the influence of land-use activities on forested ecosystems have led to research on the relationships among landscape-scale environmental features, in-stream habitat characteristics, and coastal cutthroat trout abundance and distribution in watersheds in western Oregon.
