Correigh Greene, Ph.D.

Research Biologist


Correigh Greene began research in the Watershed program as a NRC postdoctoral research associate, and has since been hired permanently. His general research interests concern how individual behavior influences population dynamics and distribution, and how knowledge of behavior might aid in conservation. His research has focused on habitat use and habitat selection in a number of different wildlife species, including great gray owls and western fence lizards. Correigh has a B.S. in Biopsychology and Environmental Studies (Tufts University), an M.S. in Wildlife Ecology (University of Michigan), and a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior (UC Davis).

Current Research

Correigh's current research deals with integrating habitat-specific dynamics, including habitat selection and life history variability, into life cycle models. Concurrent with these theoretical studies, he is investigating density-dependent relationships at juvenile and spawning life history stages in salmon. Current research projects include: a habitat-specific population model for salmon communities; the role of density-dependent movements in juvenile Chinook life histories; effects of tributary junctions on fish-habitat relationships.
