Research and Scholarly Activities

Research Activities
  • "TXDOT native plants" (On-Going) The purpose of this research is to identify potential native plants to be used by TXDOT on road right of ways and other prairie restoration projects. Selected plants will go through a series of rigorous tests to determine if they will meet our needs. Once a final species list is established, we will provide starter seed to commercial seed producers to make the seed available statewide.
  • Breeden, J. B., Hernandez, F., Silvy, N. J., Peterson, M. J., Roberson, J. A. An evaluation of distance sampling to survey urban populations of white-winged dove. Journal of Wildlife Management.

Dr. Jeff Breeden

Jeff Breeden is an Associate Professor in WSES at Tarleton.  While an undergraduate, he was an intern in the Lower Rio Grande Valley at the Las Palomas Wildlife Management area for three summers assisting with management of white-winged dove.  In addition, both his masters and doctoral research focused on Columbids.  He has experience in habitat evaluation, abundance estimation, productivity, behavior, trapping, and radio tracking doves and pigeons.  His current research focus includes the evaluation of habitat quality for threatened ungulate populations at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. He has GIS applications experience and teaches the introductory GIS course at Tarleton.
