Fish and Wildlife Ecology Seminar – Monday (4/8/19) 3pm

Christopher Schell (Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Urban Ecology, University of Washington, Tacoma) will be presenting Monday (4/8/19) from 3-4pm in the Physics and Astronomy Tower, Room C520.

Title: Nothing to Fear: Uncovering the mechanisms that mediate fearlessness in coyotes


Reduced fear in wildlife is becoming an extensive phenomenon across the globe. Justifiably so, as a minimum level of habituation may be necessary to survive rapid, human-driven landscape changes. However, fearlessness beyond a certain threshold may increase the potential for human-wildlife conflict. Investigating the mechanisms that underpin human-directed fearlessness may therefore be a significant tool for diagnosing and mitigating conflict before incidents occur, increasing the basic and applied potential of such research endeavors. In this talk, Dr. Schell will detail the potential processes that contribute to the emergence of boldness behaviors in coyotes (Canis latrans), a widespread urban-adapted mammal. The talk will also explore the varied work of the Grit City Carnivore Project, a research collaborative dedicated to uncovering the patterns and processes by which urban carnivores navigate urbanization in the Pacific Northwest.

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Chris Schell is an Assistant Professor of Urban Ecology at the University of Washington, Tacoma, and principal investigator of the Grit City Carnivore Project. Dr. Schell’s research integrates evolutionary theory with ecological application to disentangle the processes accentuating human-carnivore conflict. Specifically, his interests lie in understanding the physiological mechanisms and anthropogenic drivers that may contribute to fearless behavior in urban carnivores. His research is uniquely tied to the community: urban ecology is inherently a synergy of anthropogenic forces and natural processes. Hence, he often works closely with nondominant communities (e.g. ethnic and racial minorities), wildlife managers, cultural institutions, and philanthropic organizations to help foster mutually enriching relationships among people and wildlife. Chris received his B.A. in Psychology from Columbia University (2009) and his masters and Ph.D in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Chicago (2015).
