Patrick Jodice, Ph.D.

Patrick's research is focused on three primary areas: (1) breeding and foraging ecology of seabirds and shorebirds, (2) wildlife conservation physiology, and (3) wildlife ecology in urban and natural systems. 


Patrick has conducted research and monitoring programs in a variety of marine and terrestrial ecosystems and has studied both avian and mammalian populations. All of his research has been driven by management and conservation issues, although the results are often of both an applied and basic nature.

His current and prior work has emphasized wildlife conservation with emphases in

  • marine ornithology,
  • avian ecology,
  • reproductive energetics,
  • foraging ecology,
  • survey design and methodology, and
  • urban ecology.

Only Patrick's five most recent publications are shown here. For more information about Patrick, including a full publications list, visit his profile page on the South Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit web site.
