Dr. Gawlik is Director of the Environmental Science Program and Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Florida Atlantic University. His research focuses on waterbird ecology and conservation, wetland and intertidal ecosystems, restoration ecology, and the use of birds in aquatic ecosystem management. His work with ibis, spoonbills, and storks is primarily in identifying wetland processes that control their populations and in quantifying responses in their productivity, behavior, and physiological condition. He has a special focus on hydrological processes. He and his students have developed stork and ibis habitat models that link bird populations to the hydrologic management and restoration of the Everglades, of Florida, U.S.A.
