David Dobkin has conducted ecological research on wildlife and ecosystems of the western U.S. for more than 35 years, often with a focus on birds and arid-land riparian systems. In 1993, he established the nonprofit High Desert Ecological Research Institute to create a regional center for ecological research and policy analysis with a focus on natural resource issues related to the Intermountain West and Pacific Northwest. In addition to the standard peer-reviewed scientific publications, he is the author/coauthor of five books on the ecology and conservation of birds and other wildlife, and he served for 8 years as editor of The Condor, an international journal of avian biology.
