Bedford M. Vestal
Associate Professor Emeritus of Biology


Current Research Interests

Past research involved social behavior, behavioral ecology and spatial aspects of behavior of mammals. One area is social organization of small mammal populations including spatial relationships of kin, kin recognition, and influence of environmental factors on social behavior.

Current work is on science education and human behavior as it relates to learning. I primarily work with adult students who are studying at a distance and study factors that influence learning in science and interdisciplinary areas.
