John Berini is a landscape ecologist interested in how environmental change is influencing the behavior of large mammals. He is particularly interested in how landscape-level variation in the abiotic environment leads to spatially explicit differences in plant chemistry and the movement and feeding behaviors of the animals that depend on these plants.
