Landscape Ecologist

Marc Adamus

Kevin has served as a Landscape Ecologist at The Wilderness Society since 2019.

His current research is focused on developing an individual-based forest dynamics model to evaluate the consequences of alternative forest management strategies, high-resolution mapping of forest structural complexity, and using national forest inventory data to characterize the diversity and dynamics in older forests.

Previous projects include modeling wildland fire risk and mapping opportunities to steward fire in wilderness areas, mapping high-integrity forests across the global humid tropics, conservation planning for at-risk species on private lands, and classifying, inventorying, and mapping mature and old-growth forests in the U.S. He integrates his interests in policy evaluation, collaborative conservation planning, and forest landscape ecology using geospatial analysis, applied statistics, and process-based simulation models.

Kevin holds a BA in Economics and MS in Forest Management from The University of Montana.
