John Clare



  • MS University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point 2013
  • BA Bates College 2004


I joined the Maine CFWRU in September 2013. Prior to this, I assisted a variety of wildlife survey and spatial ecology studies and performed contract work for state agencies. My M.S. research at UW-Stevens Point focused on generating predictive models of bobcat occurrence and density using non-invasive survey techniques. My free-time is spent wisely.

Research Interests

My interests are generally applied, with a particular emphasis on improving population inference via survey techniques, design, and analysis. My current research focuses on determining the population status and trend of American marten: understanding how marten population parameters respond to the surrounding environment and both habitat and harvest management, and determining the most efficient means for monitoring purposes.
