"The Symposium is tremendously important to the future of all of Utah. You guys are educating stakeholders across Northern Utah in an objective, user-friendly way about issues, problems and concerns that are not being discussed publicly anywhere else."  -Zach Frankel, Utah Rivers Council

Andreas (Andy) Leidolf received a Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry/Wildlife Management from Mississippi State University in 1995. He pursued his graduate education at Utah State University (USU), where he received a Master of Science degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Ecology in 1999. He served as an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) of Biology and Environmental Science at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, from 2006-2007. Prior to that, he had been involved in teaching and research at USU’s College of Natural Resources for over ten years. In 2008, Andy returned to USU, first as a Research Fellow, and later as Assistant Research Program Administrator for the Plant Ecophysiology Lab, a position he left in 2013 upon the lab’s closure. Andy’s research and scholarly interests include natural resource use, management, and sustainability; disturbance ecology, including both natural and anthropogenic disturbance; and avian ecology and conservation. He has co-authored seven peer-reviewed articles in international, national, regional, and state scientific journals on topics ranging from Black Prairie plant floristics to the effects of stand-replacing wildfire on avian species assemblages. He is also passionate about teaching, particularly to non-scientific learners, and is a keen follower of politics and policy, particularly where science and natural resource issues are concerned.
