PUBLICATIONS

If you would like a digital copy of any of these publications, DO NOT PAY FOR IT. Scientists don’t get paid for the articles they publish; in fact, we often must pay the journals to publish them. If you would like to read any of these papers, first try searching my pages on Research Gate or Google Scholar. Also, most of the papers I published when I was a federal employee from 2006–2019 are available from the National Wildlife Research Center. If none of that works, just send me an email and I’ll be happy to send you a copy directly. Thanks for your interest in our lab’s research! We'll try to update this list every few months. —Travis
