Dr. Tim Carter is currently the Chair of Environment, Geology, and Natural Resources Department and Director of Field Stations and Environmental Education Center and Professor of Biology at Ball State University. He teaches courses in wildlife biology and mammology and serves as curator for the Ball State University Mammalogy Collection.
Tim's research focuses on non-game and endangered species and how land management affects these animal populations. In particular, he has studied the federally endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) with a focus on identifying and delineating critical summer habitats as well as examining winter hibernation habitats. Recently, he has worked more closely with Urban Ecology, studying the ecology and management of over abundant species such as deer and geese.
