“We are thrilled to have Duane join us for this month’s Beer and Deer Webinar and can’t wait to offer up his knowledge to our listeners,” said NDA President and CEO, Nick Pinizzotto. “He is intensely well versed in not only deer, but a variety of wildlife ecology and management. His work is extremely impressive, and I know he will be a great asset for our listeners.”

Diefenbach is currently active in The Wildlife Society and a Certified Wildlife Biologist. He has served as associate editor for the Journal of Wildlife Management, vice president of the Northeast Section and chair of the Biometrics Working Group. Diefenbach and his students have been collaborating with the Pennsylvania Game Commission since 2000 on a series of research projects on deer and deer hunters. His most current research is The Deer-Forest Study, which is a long-term study of the relationship of deer herbivory, competing vegetation and soil conditions on the forest vegetation conditions.

Join NDA the second Wednesday of every month to sit in with NDA’s staff and guests as they cover a topic related to deer hunting, habitat management, or the latest in deer research.
