Fred Provenza is professor emeritus of Behavioral Ecology in the Department of Wildland Resources at Utah State University. He has pioneered understanding of the ways foraging behavior links soils and plants with herbivores and humans. For 40 years, his team conducted research that laid the foundation for behavior-based management of landscapes. Those efforts led to the formation in 2001 of BEHAVE, an international consortium of scientists and land managers on five continents. BEHAVE is committed to integrating behavioral principles with local knowledge to enhance the environmental, economic, and cultural values of rural and urban communities. Fred is the author of three books, including his most recent, Nourishment: What Animals Can Teach Us About Rediscovering Our Nutritional Wisdom.
