Faculty Advisory Board

Karen Bjorndal Karen A. Bjorndal

Director, ACCSTR
Department of Biology
College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
Email: bjorndal@ufl.edu
Telephone: 352 392 1126

Karen’s research focuses on nutritional ecology and demography of sea turtles with an emphasis on how nutrition regulates their productivity. She also evaluates the roles of sea turtles in marine ecosystems and how these ecosystems have changed as a result of the drastic declines in sea turtle populations.


Alan B. Bolten Alan B. Bolten

Associate Director, ACCSTR
Department of Biology
College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
Email: abolten@ufl.edu
Telephone: 352 392 5194

Alan’s research interests focus on the biology of the juvenile oceanic stages of sea turtles, on their migratory patterns and demography, and on the role sea turtles play in marine ecosystems.


Ray R. Carthy Ray R. Carthy

Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, USGS, and
Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation
College of Agricultural and Life Sciences
Email: ngosi@ufl.edu

Ray focuses on sea turtle nesting biology and juvenile sea turtle demographics and habitat use. His research targets behavioral and physiological responses to anthropogenic, stochastic and climate change factors at both the individual and population levels, and seeks to inform coastal conservation and management objectives.


Elliott R. Jacobson Elliott R. Jacobson

Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences
College of Veterinary Medicine
Email: jacobsone@ufl.edu

Elliott’s research focuses on infectious diseases, health assessment, blood values, and drug pharmokinetics of sea turtles.


Paul Klein Paul Klein

Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine
College of Medicine
Email: paklein@ufl.edu

Paul’s research focuses on pathogenesis and host defense mechanisms in Chelonians and serodiagnosis and seroepidemiology of infectious diseases of wildlife.


Brian A. Stacy Brian A. Stacy

Marine Animal Disease Laboratory
College of Veterinary Medicine
Email: brian.stacy@noaa.gov

Brian’s areas of interest are diseases of free-ranging wildlife and conservation. His projects include a variety of infectious and noninfectious disease studies, investigations of animal die-offs, and studies of human impacts. As a diagnostic pathologist, he has a strong interest in applied molecular studies.


Bill Witherington Blair Witherington

Senior Sea Turtle Conservation Biologist, ACCSTR
Department of Biology
College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and
Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment
b.witherington@ufl.edu

Blair’s work addresses varied questions applied to conserving sea turtles. His research includes measuring threats on nesting beaches, assessing clutch and hatchling production, and measuring effects from marine debris ingestion. He conducts surveys of sea turtle abundance in a variety of foraging habitats and has a special interest in the ecology of surface-pelagic (oceanic) juvenile sea turtles.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
