Dr. Reed Bowman is interested in the interplay between the adaptations of scrub organisms to their unique environment and the constraints imposed by variation of ecological processes, namely fire, as these interactions shape population dynamics. He is also interested in the variation in individual life histories and their fitness consequences specifically focusing on the Florida scrub-jay. In particular, he has focused on the effects of urbanization on the demography and social biology of the Florida scrub-jay and on the effects of multiple resource management (grazing, forestry, human recreation, military training and endangered species management) on Florida scrub-jays, red-cockaded woodpeckers, and the Florida grasshopper sparrow, all federally-listed birds.
