Orono, ME 04469-5775

Dr. Morano obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Nevada, Reno in the Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology Program; and B.S. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in Natural Resource Conservation, Wildlife.  Dr. Morano’s research interests focus on the population ecology of large mammals; particularly how changes in landscape composition and climate influence movement, resource use, and population dynamics. Much of her previous research has centered on the interaction between life-history strategies, climate patterns, and resource availability on mule-deer and elk populations in the western U.S.  Since coming to Maine Dr. Morano has expanded her research to include forest ecosystems and associated wildlife species within the northeast.  She is also generally interested in the implications of societal and cultural values on natural resource management, and how to better incorporate multiple stakeholder perspectives to inform conservation actions.  Dr. Morano has taught a number of first and second-year undergraduate courses and is currently the advisor to the Student Chapter of the Wildlife Society
