Title: USGS Biologist Elected Fellow of the American Ornithologists' Union
Dr. Gary Krapu, U.S. Geological Survey scientist and Dickey County, N.D. native, was recently elected Fellow of the American Ornithologists' Union for his exceptional contributions to ornithology through research, conservation efforts, and education.
Krapu, a wildlife research biologist at the USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC) in Jamestown, N.D., received this prestigious honor at the 129th AOU Stated Meeting in Jacksonville, Fla., for his long-term scientific research on migratory bird populations. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers on habitat needs, nutritional requirements, and population ecology of waterfowl, sandhill cranes, and arctic-nesting shorebirds, and several of these papers are helping to guide waterfowl and sandhill crane management and wetland conservation efforts across North America.
