Conner, J. Richard individual record
Senior Professor
overview

Dr. Conner's research emphasizes the integration of economics with ecology in the management of grazinglands and related resources. His work has dealt with such issues as how to select the optimal combination of wildlife/ livestock enterprises while considering both biological diversity and relative levels and variation in enterprise costs and prices. Much of his work has been directed toward the development of analytical methodologies which facilitate incorporating the impacts of variation inherent to range- related enterprises into management decisions. Dr. Conner also participates in an interdisciplinary team dedicated to the development of computerized decision support systems (DSS) for use by grazingland resource managers. The DSS are designed to assist resource managers in both strategic and tactical planning and provide a means of appropriately accounting for both economic and ecologic consequences of alternative management practices.
