Ecology Alaska was founded in 2012 by Rachel Wheat, Yiwei Wang, and Taal Levi. Since that time we have used a variety of research methods and analytical techniques to study the influences of Pacific salmon on terrestrial salmon consumers throughout the north Pacific coast. The site was built and is maintained by Rachel, who is also in charge of the blog.

In 2014, Dr. Taal Levi joined the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University. You can find out more about his ongoing research here.

In 2015, Dr. Yiwei Wang joined the San Fransisco Bay Bird Observatory as their new Executive Director. See what she’s been up to here.

In 2016, Dr. Rachel Wheat completed her PhD at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She’s actively job searching. You can view her Linkedin profile here, and find copies of her publications here, on ResearchGate.
