Thomas Wilson teaches UHON 2850 – Innovation Lab I and UHON 2860 – Innovation Lab II. He is a broadly trained and experienced field biologist who specializes in solving field-based problems. At UTC, he has established two long-term studies concerning amphibians and freshwater turtles, and much of this research focuses on population viability and spatial ecology. Specifically, he has designed a series of green-ways to study amphibian landscape dynamics so that managers can make adaptive conservation and management strategies. His background in classical ecological analyses developed his interest in designing new methods for measuring and monitoring biodiversity, and evaluating the statistical biases associated with sampling vertebrates in various habitats. To this end, he has collaborated with scientists in the public and private sectors in an effort to encourage decision makers to standardize ecological and environmental census techniques.
