Teaching /Professional Interests
Charles T. Robbins has been a professor of Zoology and Natural Resource Sciences at WSU since 1974. His research interests include nutrition and energetics of wild mammals, particularly bears. Dr. Robbins' current research includes:
- Foraging ecology of bears
- The role of bears in ecosystem nutrient cycling, particularly the movement of nutrients from salmon, through bears, and into forest plant communities
- Energetics and habitat use of free-ranging bears
- The interactions of bears, recreationists, and salmon in Alaska.
Captive and wild grizzly bears are used in these studies.
