Research in the Boyle Lab combines behavior, ecology, conservation biology, remote sensing and GIS in order to address how anthropogenic changes to the environment affect the distribution, persistence, ecology, and future viability of fauna and flora.
Current projects focus on 1) the impacts of habitat fragmentation on species in South America; 2) ecological impacts of urbanization in Memphis, Tennessee; and 3) behavior of captive animals at The Memphis Zoo. If you are interested in learning more about primate conservation, behavior and ecology, please visit the Pitheciine Action Group.
