Unit Leader

David Andersen

I serve as the Leader of the Minnesota Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, having come to the MN Unit in 1989 as the Assistant Leader-Wildlife. I am a U.S. Geological Survey Wildlife Research Biologist, and my research focus is in the area of avian population ecology and conservation. I am currently working with American woodcock in Minnesota, golden-winged warblers in the western Great Lakes region, Eastern Population sandhill cranes, and tundra peregrines in Alaska.
