Assistant Professor of Wildlife & Fisheries Resources
Dr. Rota’s research addresses diverse questions in applied vertebrate ecology. A common link throughout his research is the application and development of modern statistical techniques that capture many of the myriad processes giving rise to ecological data sets.
