Hi, I'm Larkin Powell, professor of conservation biology and animal ecology at the School of Natural Resources.

I teach courses in the school's fisheries and wildlife major, including field courses to Cedar Point Biological Station and to Namibia. I have also led student trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and to Puerto Rico. I have an active research lab for master's and doctoral students and postdoctoral associates.

My areas of study attempt to explain how management of landscapes affects wildlife populations. Many of my research projects are focused on private lands or state/federal properties. I have students working on projects assessing grazing management, farm bill conservation programs, prescribed burning, and other management-related issues. I have worked on projects involving forest and grassland songbirds, upland game birds, sandhill cranes, quail-doves, waterfowl, small mammals, mesopredators, painted turtles and raptors.

I've been at UNL since 2001 and I participate in the applied ecology faculty group.

Please visit my personal site to learn more about myself, my team and recent news.
