Mike Marshall joined the institute in June 2010 as an extension assistant for the Fort Hood project in Gatesville, Texas. He works with project members and Army personnel to plan, inventory, implement and monitor land management techniques to improve and increase training capabilities. Specifically, he leads the effort on the implementation of an assessment and monitoring protocol for documenting impacts of land management activities and infantry training on endangered species and their habitats.
Prior to joining the institute, Marshall was a research assistant at Texas A&M University under Dr. Michael Morrison, working with both the black-capped vireo and golden-cheeked warbler on Fort Hood.
Marshall earned a bachelor of science in ecology, evolution and behavior from the University of Texas at Austin and a master of science in wildlife and fisheries sciences from Texas A&M.
