In the Anthropocene, human pressures on wildlife are reaching unprecedented levels. Animals, plants, and entire ecosystems must bear these pressures across different spatial and temporal scales. We, the members of the Resource Ecology Group (REG), study how humans influence wildlife. We examine both direct mechanisms and mechanisms that are more indirect and that are part of larger-scale processes. Examples of the former include hunting, fire, and other disturbances; examples of the latter include habitat modification and climate change.
