Two groups at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will host a guest lecturer who will bring his knowledge of the wolverine.

The Wildlife and Agriculture Graduate Student Organization and the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute join to bring Dr. Kevin McKelvey, the monitoring and disturbance ecology team leader at the Wildlife Ecology Research Unit Rocky Mountain Research Station of the United States Forest Service in Missoula, Montana. 

He will speak on The Wolverine: Biology and Reputation, Climatic Requirements and Likely Future at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, at the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Center, 1730 W. Corral Ave.

 McKelvey has focused his research on developing new methods to determine status and trends of wildlife across space and time. He and his colleagues have worked to model climate change and observe how it affects the wolverine populations for the next century. 

The seminar is free and open to the public. 

McKelvey earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Montana and his doctorate from the University of Florida.
