Dr. Trammell received his BA in Biology and Environmental Studies from Western State College of Colorado, an MS in Geography and a PhD in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno. His specialty is applying Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to complex landscapes, with a focus on socio-ecological interactions and conservation planning. He has extensive experience in modeling past, current and future landscapes at local (wildlife refuge) to regional (northern rivers of Australia) to landscape (southwestern U.S.) scales using remote sensing and GIS. Dr. Trammell is particularly interested in using alternative landscape futures and scenario analysis to better plan for natural resources, both wild and urban, in the future.  In his free time, Jamie enjoys birdwatching, mountain biking, camping, fishing, and generally exploring the natural world with his family.
