Biography

Julie J. Murphree is an instructor in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts and a doctoral candidate in biology and society in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Her primary areas of research focus on wildlife conservation biology, animal behavior and environmental enrichment in captive animals. Her latest research on forgaing behavior and nutrition in ungulates utilized controlled feeding trials in pygmy goats in order to evaluate the efficacy of DNA sequencing and microhistological analysis for diet determination in ruminants. Further ecological interests include population dynamics in mammals and anthropogenic impacts on ecosystem structure. Murphree's current research foccuses on the ecological, social and economic aspects of the managment of free-roaming horses on public lands in the American West. In addition, she is partnering with the Conservation Reserve Program and Oklahoma ranchers in her efforts to restore the mixed prairie grassland of her family's fourth generation farm in the panhandle region of Oklahoma. 

Murphree's master's degree in secondary education, with teacher certification in biology, examined curriculum development and instructional methods in science. Her experience teaching middle school science contributed to the development of her thesis which analyzed the role of situational interest on motivation and student success in science.
