L. David (Dave) Mech (photo) obtained his B.S. degree in wildlife conservation from Cornell University and his Ph.D. from Purdue and is a life member of the Wildlife Society. He is a senior research scientist with Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center, Biological Resources Division, United States Geological Survey, and an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota. He has studied wolves and their prey for over 40 years. Elizabeth K. (Liz) Harper received her B.A. from Moorhead State University and is currently working on her M.S. at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul. Her thesis involves the analysis of 20 years of wolf depredation data. Over the last 10 years, she has worked on a variety of projects, including the black-footed ferret reintroduction in Wyoming; the Minnesota wolf project; and various small mammal projects for Minnesota's County Biological Survey, Smithsonian, The School for Field Studies, Moorhead State University, and the University of North Dakota. Her research interests include small-mammal ecology and wolf-livestock conflicts. Thomas J. (Tom) Meier is a wildlife biologist with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service's wolf recovery program in Helena, Montana. He worked from 1986 to 1993 on wolf research for the United States National Park Service in Denali National Park, Alaska, and from 1976 to 1986 on wolf management and research for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in Minnesota and Wisconsin. He received his B.S. in biology and M.S. in zoology from the University of Minnesota. While conducting this survey, he worked for the University of Minnesota's Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. Tom's interests include wolf population structure and methods of resolving wolf-human conflicts. William J. (Bill) Paul is a district supervisor for the United States Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services program in Minnesota, where he coordinates federal wolf depredation control activities. He received his B.S. in biology from Moorhead State University and has been involved with wolf research and control programs in Minnesota for 25 years.
