Research Area(s): Population and community-level phenomena in ecosystems of peninsular Florida, small mammals' community structure, dispersal strategies, and habitat selection.
Dr. Stout’s program is interested in population and community-level phenomena in ecosystems of peninsular Florida. His work with small mammals has focused on community structure, dispersal strategies, and habitat selection and the effects of habitat fragmentation on the biota of sand pine scrub and sandhill communities continues to be examined. Other research concerns long-term studies of the pigmy fringe tree, scrub lupine, and the gopher tortoise. Recent work has focused on forested fresh water wetlands, fire ecology, endangered plants, beach mice, and the Florida scrub jay.
