Profession or Area of Expertise

Wildlife ecology of national parks and pristine areas. Effects of grazing on biodiversity. Remote sensing and conservation biology of endangered species.

Personal Statement

I am currently Research Coordinator at Olympic National Park. Before that I spent 4 years in Wyoming as Science Director for The Nature Conservancy's Wyoming Chapter, and 2 years as staff scientist for the Wyoming Outdoor Council. I did research investigating the effects of cattle ranching on biodiversity looking at birds, mammals, insects, and plant community ecology. My masters degree is from Cornell University, Ph.D. in aquatic ecology from the University of Georgia. From 1990-1996 I was park ecologist at Joshua Tree National Park working mainly on desert tortoises. I grew up in Philadelphia as a kid hanging around the Academy of Natural Sciences.

By and About

  • I have published what I hope will be a thought-inducing article in the latest (August 2003) issue of BioScience. The paper (Freilich, J.E., J.M. Emlen, J.J. Duda, D.C. Freeman, and P.J. Cafaro. 2003. Ecological effects of ranching: A six-point critique. BioScience 53 (8):759-765.) goes into six topics that ranchers need to address before ranches can be considered sustainable, bioconservation sites.
