As an assistant professor and Extension Wildlife Specialist for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, John Tomeček provides support on the management of wildlife and its habitat to a diverse stakeholder group, including private landowners, land managers, ranchers, farmers, government agencies (city, county, state, and federal), non-government organizations, and urban residents.
Tomeček specializes in research and education on a variety of issues, especially nuisance animals (overabundant deer, predatory animals, crop pests), the management of game animals, and wildlife disease concerns (including zoonotic diseases). In the past, Tomeček worked as a private consultant and researcher, addressing issues of wildlife integration on agricultural lands, mitigating damage from or reducing numbers of overabundant or nuisance animals. He has also worked extensively on the culture and habits of wildlife resources users, helping to tailor management solutions that are not only scientifically sound, but socially accepted.
