How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am a Wildlife Conservation Ecologist interested in creating innovative interdisciplinary ways to address management and conservation-related concerns in working landscapes with novel insights and tools. * CV available upon request, for more detailed information please see jessicamohlman.com
May 2019 - February 2020
Zoological Society of Milwaukee
- Supported the transition of a core conservation program to another global organization. Researched and reviewed the conservation and wildlife landscape in Wisconsin to aid in determining a new direction for the conservation department. Researched local and regional invasive species, species of concern, and habitats to determine areas of management and research need using ArcGIS. Developed and presented recommendations to the organization’s senior leadership, including the Society’s CEO.
August 2016 - March 2019
- Research Assistant
- Investigated the effects of rabbit hunting on Northern Bobwhite stress and movement behavior through movement, space use, and stress hormone analysis. Performed all statistical analyses in R and ArcGIS. Assisted with necessary fieldwork and project implementation. Supervised and managed 10 + technicians. Provided outreach to the public regarding research. Generated seasonal research reports for stakeholders and the DNR. Published research in peer-reviewed journals.

The northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) is an ecologically and economically valuable species in the United States. Managers rely on autumn density estimates to set harvest regulations, balancing the interests of hunters and long‐term bobwhite population viability. Spatial capture‐recapture (SCR) is a useful framework for estimating population s...
Rhinonycteridae (trident bats) are a small Palaeotropical family of insectivorous bats allied to Hipposideridae. Their taxonomy has been in a state of flux. Here, we use mitochondrial and nuclear sequences to evaluate species relationships, confirming the monophyly of both Triaenops and Paratriaenops. Although most Triaenops afer specimens are reco...
Examination of the endocrine system through non-invasive fecal sampling may improve population management more than using demographic indicators alone. By addressing the physiological mechanisms that are influencing fitness, management actions can be proactively developed to alleviate stressors. Proactive determination of vulnerable populations is...
Abstract Human hunting activity and disturbance can significantly impact prey species through both consumptive and nonconsumptive effects. The nonconsumptive effects of rabbit hunting on Northern Bobwhite (Colinus virginianus; hereafter, bobwhite) are currently unknown. Increased perceived risk of predation by bobwhite during rabbit hunting events...
