About Bernard M Walton (Michael)

I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist with interests in the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function, and the impact of human-activity on that relationship. My research has emphasized the role of amphibians and reptiles in ecosystems, but my students and I have worked on projects involving deer, small mammals, birds, and insects as well. I also have a strong commitment to conservation of biodiversity and environmental issues. Hence, my research often has applied conservation and resource management components, with a particular focus on urban ecosystems.
I live in Orange Village, OH with my wife, two sons, two cats,and a pond full of frogs and turtles.
