Welcome

You’ve stumbled upon the Davis Species and Habitats Lab (aka the “DaSH” Lab!) at Oregon State University. We use applied science to inform the conservation and management of sensitive fish and wildlife species and their habitats. Most of our research is centered on three themes:

  1. Ecosystem and community level responses to disturbance events
  2. Landscape scale processes and their effects on target species
  3. The development of monitoring tools, programs, and strategies to inform management actions

Our work examines how aquatic habitats are shifting due to climate change and the resultant implications for dependent fish and waterbird species.
