Meet Bill Dodge

William (Bill) Dodge is a PhD candidate in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wayne State University. He earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in wildlife management from Michigan State University.

His M.S. thesis research examined survival, reproduction, and movements of moose (Alces alces) in the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. His PhD research involves gathering baseline data on the ecology of coyotes (Canis latrans) in the greater metropolitan Detroit area of southeastern Michigan.

His specific objectives are to: 1) assess site occupancy, detection probability, and habitat use of coyotes, 2) determine seasonal diets and foraging patterns of coyotes, and 3) estimate coyote home range size and configuration.
