Biography

Dr. Bateman is a field ecologist and conservation biologist interested in how human land-use affects vertebrate populations and habitats, especially in riparian ecosystems. Her research interests lie in exploring population and community responses to habitat alteration, with a particular interest in amphibians, reptiles, and birds. Her current research focuses on exploring the impacts of riparian restoration and saltcedar biocontrol on herpetofauna populations along the Virgin River in Nevada. Dr. Bateman also has a biodiversity research project focused on the urban Salt River in central Arizona. Dr. Bateman holds memberships with the Wildlife Society, Society for Ecological Restoration, Ecological Society of America, and Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles.
