Gabe Barrile

Gabe graduated from Bloomsburg University, PA in 2013, majoring in Biology. His undergraduate research focused on life-history trait evolution in Fowler’s toads (Anaxyrus fowleri ) on several Atlantic Coast barrier islands. Additionally, Gabe compared time-budgeting behavior between captive and free-ranging black-handed spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi ). After graduation, he taught marine ecology to middle and high school students at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station near Wallops Island, VA.

 

Gabe is currently a master’s candidate in the Department of Zoology and Physiology at the University of Wyoming, based in the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. He is broadly interested in studying the behavior, ecology, and evolution of sensitive species in order to develop effective conservation and management strategies. More specifically, his research investigates the individual and interactive mechanisms underlying current amphibian population declines and species extinctions worldwide.
