Carl Brown


Carl graduated from the University of Montana in 2009, majoring in Wildlife Biology and International Relations. Field projects worked over the last six years have focused on Common Loons, Trumpeter Swans, small mammals, ungulates, and disease throughout Montana and Wyoming. This fall marked the end of a spring banding and summer survey season on Black Rosy-finches in northwest Wyoming. This project was independent to the master program.

Research Interests

Carl’s research investigates the distribution of the Black Rosy-Finch (Leucosticte atrata), an alpine-breeding obligate, in relation to habitat and climatic characteristics including snowpack.
