Bill Kendall

Dr. Kendall received graduate degrees from North Carolina State University, followed by five years in population assessment with USFWS Migratory Bird Management, and then 13 years as a researcher with Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, before joining the Colorado Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in 2010. His research is both methodological and applied, focused largely on developing models of population dynamics or species distribution that can be used to inform conservation decisions. He has worked extensively in developing and improving capture-recapture and occupancy study designs and models, and in developing structured decision-making approaches to wildlife management.
