The Jones Lab is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico and operates in a close partnership between the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, USDA Forest Service Southwestern Region, and the University of New Mexico

In the Jones Lab, we use empirical field data, ecological theory, and quantitative approaches to figure out how to more effectively conserve wildlife and their ecosystems. Our research advances understanding of how to conserve species and biodiversity in a rapidly changing world, with changing human needs and pressures. Much of our past and ongoing work focuses on how wildlife respond to fire and forest management, and the ecology and conservation of wildlife in fire-prone ecosystems.
