Dr. Kasner received a B.S. in Biology from Angelo State University in 1995, an M.S. in Biology from Angelo State University in 1999, and Ph.D. in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from Texas A&M University in 2004.  Dr. Kasner was previously on the biology faculty at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX and worked for the National Audubon Society as the Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon Texas. He joined the faculty at Wayland in Fall 2009.  Dr. Kasner teaches courses in introductory biology, invertebrate biology, vertebrate biology, conservation, and field biology. 

Dr. Kasner’s research interests are focused on the ecology and conservation of birds and the ecology of freshwater fishes.  He is also interested in the interactions between wildlife and industrial development, particularly the development of renewable energy.  Current research in which Dr. Kasner is involved includes ecology of endangered Interior Least Terns, ecology of Snowy Plovers, and ecology and conservation of Reddish Egrets and other waterbirds.  Future research plans include the ecology of stream fishes in West Texas and continuing research on birds.  Students interested in participating in field biology and research are encouraged to contact Dr. Kasner for opportunities.

Dr. Andrew Kasner represented Wayland at the Academic Council meeting of the Au Sable Institute for Environmental Studies in Mancelona, Michigan last September. READ MORE...
