Lisa A. Shipley
Professor and Scientist
- Foraging ecology of mammals, interactions between plants and herbivores, and ecology and management of wild ungulates
- The influence of animal size, digestive morphology, and feeding strategy on the diet and habitats selected by herbivores (both free-ranging and captive herbivores, such as woodland
caribou, blue duikers, porcupines, and pygmy rabbits, are used in these studies).
Areas of Expertise
Dr. Lisa A. Shipley is a wildlife ecologist in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at Washington State University. Her research interests include foraging ecology and nutrition of mammals, interactions between plants and herbivores at different spatial scales, and ecology and management of wild ungulates. Both free-ranging and captive herbivores, such as mule deer, pronghorn, elk, and pygmy rabbits are used in these studies. Lisa directs the Wild Ungulate Facility and the Pygmy Rabbit Captive Breeding Facility at WSU. She is the faculty advisor of the WSU Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society.
