Name- Mike Conroy
Affiliation-- USGS, University of Georgia

What do you do (in 2 sentences or so)?-
Teach a graduate course in population estimiation and modeling. Research into population estimation, modeling, decision analysis, adaptive management. Currently working mostly with hierarchical modeling using MCMC.

How would you describe your modeling background: strong, moderate, minimal
- Strong but with significant gaps.


How would you describe your statistical background: strong, moderate, minimal-- Strong (again with gaps).

Population and ecosystem scientist with the Canadian Wildlife Servive. Experienced in population, demographic, ecological and statistical modelling, programming and inference. Skills are strong within my core area; but I need exposure and education in developing ideas and methodologies.

I am an M.S. student working with the Southeastern beach mouse, a threatened species on the east coast of Florida. I plan to do a PVA for my thesis.

I have minimal modeling experience.

I have a moderate statistical background.

Conservation biologist for Parks Canada's species at risk program. I do recovery planning using various PVA models: diffusion approximation, matrix population models, and vital rates simulation. I have a strong background in matrix population models and a moderate one in statistics.

I am a professor at the University of Guelph. I am interested in the role of behavior on population dyanmics and community interactions, particularly in terrestrial systems. My students and I are working on mustelid carnivores in Canada, wolves and ungulates in Canada, and everything from lizards to lions in Serengeti National Park.

My name is Susana Rodriguez, I am a 3rd year PhD student at the Ohio State University in the Evolution and Ecology Department. I work with an invasive plant in California and I am interested in its population dynamics in relation to the spatial arrengement of native plants. I used matrix models before to describe the population of a palm that is harvested for its leaves in Colombia.
I have taken some graduate-level statistic courses, so I would say my level is moderate

Jean-Pierre Tremblay
Departement de biologie, Universite Laval
I am a Ph.D student working on deer-forest interactions. My research focus is on relationships between wildlife and habitats. I will soon begin postdoctoral work related to influence of spatial structure on large ungulate population dynamic.

My modeling background is minimal.

I would describe my statistical background as moderate. A got good background in experimental design and analysis and I use SAS as a main stat. tool.
