Biography

Dr. MacNulty works at the interface of animal behavior, population biology, and community ecology to address basic and applied questions in animal ecology and conservation. Two themes define his current research: (1) how predators structure food webs and modify ecosystem function, and (2) how populations at the edge of a species range respond to environmental change. He studies large mammals in ecosystems that range from the montane slopes of northern Utah to the polar deserts of the High Arctic. Much of his research centers on a long-term, collaborative study of wolves and ungulates in Yellowstone National Park.
