Mark Edwards is a Research Scientist and the Curator of Mammalogy at the Royal Alberta Museum, in Edmonton, Alta. His research focuses on the ecology of individuals and populations with the goal of understanding processes influencing their spatial and temporal distribution, resource use, behaviours and interactions. His approach is to combine field-based studies (e.g., telemetry, mammal capture and monitoring, etc.) with laboratory (e.g. stable isotope analysis, museum collections, etc.) and computer-based modeling and analysis (e.g., GIS, remote sensing, etc.). His research is terrestrial-based with an emphasis on large mammals inhabiting the natural and urban regions of Arctic and Nearctic landscapes.
