Dr. Dale Gawlik

Dr. Gawlick is the HRI Chair for Conservation & Biodiversity. Dr. Gawlik’s research focuses on waterbird ecology and conservation, wetland and intertidal ecosystems, restoration ecology, and the use of birds in aquatic ecosystem management. He has focused on how hydrologic processes in coastal and freshwater ecosystems control wading bird populations. He and his students have developed heron, stork, and ibis habitat models that link bird populations to the hydrologic management and restoration of the Everglades of Florida.
