Stella Uiterwaal

Stella Uiterwaal is a community ecologist focusing on predator-prey interactions. Her research combines experimental and field-based approaches to understand the causes and consequences of predation. Stella has previously developed new methods for quantifying predators’ diets and foraging rates. As a Biodiversity Postdoctoral Fellow, Stella is working with the Forest Park Living Lab project to study the movement ecology of wildlife across trophic levels, including owls, turtles, raccoons, and more. This work is in collaboration with Drs. Anthony Dell (National Great Rivers Research and Education Center), Stephen Blake (Saint Louis University), and Sharon Deem (Saint Louis Zoo).
