Partners in Flight - U.S.-- 2006 Awards

Robert Cooper, Ph.D. (University of Georgia)
Bob Cooper is a Professor in the Wildlife Ecology and Biometrics Department, University of Georgia. The significance of Bob Cooper's accomplishments to PIF can be captured in a single sentence-- developing and maintaining strong connections between research and management for successful conservation. Bob was one of the founding members of Southeast Partners in Flight more than 20 years ago and his early and continued involvement is a major reason that Southeast Partners in Flight has provided such a successful venue for connecting researchers with applied conservation problems. He coauthored A Land Managers Guide to Point Counts in 1996, which resulted in a widely adopted standard methodology for point counts throughout the southeast. It is difficult to count the number of graduate students he has had conducting research in the SE and Central America. Not only has the research of his graduate students had a major impact on timber and grassland management practices in the Southeast but many of his students have gone on to take leadership roles in Southeast Partners in Flight and other applied science partnerships (e.g., Joint Ventures and LCCs). Bob's ability to engage both his students and other graduate students throughout the Southeast in applied conservation problems has helped create a new generation of conservation leaders focused on producing rigorous science directly connected to conservation decisions. He brings students to SEPIF meetings to present and give posters and he himself uses that and other forums to communicate with state, federal and ngo land managers to develop new projects and discuss the application of older research (he does not believe in staying at the University but reaches out to get ideas).
