Justin Brashares, Ph.D.
Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation
University of California, Berkeley, USA

Justin Brashares is an Assistant Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at UC-Berkeley. He received a Master of Science degree in Wildlife Ecology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1997 and a Ph.D. in Ecology and Conservation Biology from the University of British Columbia in 2001. He conducted postdoctoral research as an NSF International fellow at the University of Cambridge.

Brashares has studied the population, community and behavioral ecology of mammals and birds in East and West Africa and North America since 1990. In his research, he relies on long-term counts of wildlife populations as well as information gained in the study of individually identified animals to advance the science and practice of conservation biology. His research currently focuses on the causes and consequences of bushmeat hunting in Africa, conservation of small populations in western North America, and landscape ecology and conservation of African ungulates.
