Kyle, Gerard individual record

Gerard Kyle earned his undergraduate degree in psychology with an emphasis in park and protected area management from the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia). His masters and PhD work continued this line of inquiry at The Pennsylvania State University where he graduated in 2001. His current research grows from this base. This research addresses an array of questions that provide insight on people's propensity to adopt behaviors that reduce their carbon footprint, protect biodiversity, promote stewardship, and support the protection and development of green infrastructure and the ecosystem services they afford. He was editor of the journal Leisure Sciences from 2013 to 2016 and is currently an Associate Editor for the journals Environment and Behavior, Society and Natural Resources, and the Human Dimensions of Wildlife.
