As part of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Science Seminar Series, Drs. Bryce Maxell and Jessica Mitchell will give a talk titled "The Montana Natural Heritage Program (MTNHP) and the Spatial Analysis Lab of the MTNHP" at noon on Wednesday, October 30 in 126 Barnard Hall.
Bryce Maxell is the Program Coordinator at the Montana Natural Heritage Program. Bryce has 25 years of experience conducting a variety of biological research in Montana, Washington state, Australia, and New Zealand and completed a Ph.D. in Fish and Wildlife Biology at the University of Montana in 2009. He has worked at the Montana Natural Heritage Program since 2005 and is passionate about making biological information available to resource managers and the general public.
Jessica Mitchell directs the Spatial Analysis Lab of the Montana Natural Heritage Program. Jessica combines backgrounds in remote sensing of vegetation and environmental planning to advance techniques for analyzing natural resource impacts and land management decision making. Applications include mapping plant chemistry and forage quality; linking plant diversity across trait, species, functional and environmental variables; and developing scalable high-resolution shrub structure products. She has a masters’ in Geographical Information Science and a Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Science from Idaho State University.
