Daniel J Hocking


I am an assistant professor of ecology at Frostburg State University. My research spans various aspects of ecology and conservation biology. I am particularly interested in the effects of land-use change, climate change, and disturbance on the abundance and distribution of species. I use a variety of statistical methods to better understand these patterns and processes. I am also an advocate for open, reproducible science and open access publication.
