HeronJPGWe have published a wide range of high-tiered journal articles that demonstrate the quality and depth of our biometric abilities (see list below, authors in bold are employees of Heron Ecological, LLC).  This list represents a subset of our skills as it is mostly focused on wildlife ecology.  Check out our ‘Exciting collaborations’ pages for examples of other types of analysis, data, and projects that we work on.

Reprints of any of these articles are available upon request (most articles are open access and can be obtained by clicking on the hyperlink) .
