Robert H. Giles, Jr. was born on May 25,
From September, 1951, to June, 1955, he attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute. He was enrolled in the Forestry and Wildlife Conservation curriculum, elected the forestry option, and graduated with a B.S. in Biology; Major, Forestry. During this time he was feature and news writer for the campus newspaper; founded and edited The Virginia Tech Nique, a student agricultural magazine; was a member of the forestry club and editor of the club annual, The Virginia Tech Forester; elected president of the V.P.I. Corps of Cadets of 6000 students; and awarded the university President's Campus-Man-of-the-Year award in 1955. In addition, he was chapter president of the Omicron Delta Kappa, national leadership honorary; member of other national honoraries, Alpha Zeta (agricultural), Pi Delta Epsilon (journalism), Pershing Rifles and Scabbard Blade (military), Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, Sigma Xi (scientific), Phi Sigma (biological), and Xi Sigma Pi (forestry).
From June, 1955, to June, 1957, he completed
two years of study and research leading to a Master of Science Degree; Major,
Wildlife Management, with Dr. J. S. Lindzey, Unit Leader. His work on the
conservation knowledge of
He attended Infantry Basic Training at
He is married (since 1956) to Mary Wilson Burnette Giles. They have two daughters, Anne Hayes Giles, born December 30, 1958, and Margaret Pfeiffer Galecki, born October 17, 1960. They have 3 grandchildren.
He joined the Virginia Commission of Game and
Inland Fisheries in 1958 and lived in
He attended The Ohio State University in 1961.
He was awarded a PhD for work on the effects of malathion insecticide labeled
with the S-35 isotope on forests in the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy
District North of Dover/New Philadelphia,
He went to teach and do research in the
College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Science at the University of Idaho,
Moscow, Idaho, in 1964. There he taught big game management, a wildlife
techniques course, and graduate seminars. He was involved in creating the
wilderness research center with Dr. Paul Dalke late in his stay there. He left
His teaching responsibilities have included:
Dr. Giles was given the first annual faculty award for teaching excellence by the students of the School (forestry and Wildlife Sciences). In 1977 he won the Wine Award, a university cash prize for teaching excellence.
In 1971 he gained an NSF Scientific Instructional Equipment grant while at Virginia Tech enabling him to acquire analog computers and a programmable calculator. He has continually attempted to use innovative educational aids including individual handouts, textbook supplements, overhead projection, physical game boards, computer based games and educational units, taped lectures, TV units, and others.
In 1967 he was a group chairman and participated in meetings of the National Academy of Sciences - Commission on Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources.
He has taught in several colleges: Integrated Pest Management (College of Agriculture), Man and the Environment (College of Architecture), and given lectures in agroforestry, world forestry, photogrammetry (GIS), and human health systems (College of Human Resources), Descriptive Environmental Systems and Design (Architecture); Complexity of Socio-Technological Problems (Mechanical Engineering).
In 1999 he developed and taught a
distance-learning wildlife management course at the
College Experience and Education
In the summer of 1952 he worked for the U.S.
Forest Service in
In September, 1963, he joined the
He was presented a plaque of appreciation by one of his classes and had three of his students join him at VPI and SU for Ph.D. work - C. D. Buffington, C. Lobdell, and T. D. McKinney.
In 1976 he was presented the Virginia Governor's Conservationist of the Year award. He has attended many classes, seminars, and workshops since 1964 including an intensive NATO-sponsored summer workshop in statistical ecology in 1978.
Dr. Giles' research interests are broad and are reflected in the following lists of theses and publications. They are centered on a systems approach to resource management and lean toward computer applications to the solution of environmental problems, particularly wildland problems. He has worked intensively on the problems of wildlife rabies, population simulation, management decision analyses, and comprehensive large area data bases used in impact analyses.
He worked on a series of studies of rabies epidemiology as a system from 1965 to 1975. He developed a computer-based rabies analysis system for the State Health Department which integrates disease control data with laboratory analyses and produces measures of program effectiveness.
Simultaneously, he completed a computer
system with the U.S. Forest Service in the
He became involved at the
Research in population modeling has been
successfully pursued with students. Early efforts in
Mr. John Mechler, in his M.S. thesis,
analyzed deer population data for the State from 1947 to 1967 and developed
regression equations for counties in
A series of theses has been directed, along with staff action, to creating a statewide information system. That effort continues with success having been reached in (1) automating environmental assessments for powerlines, airports, and surface mines, (2) providing computer-produced aids for comprehensive land use planning, and (3) developing wildlife information systems, both knowledge-based (BOVA, a wildlife information system created and delivered to the Virginia wildlife agency) as well as geographic information.
He edited the book Wildlife Management
Techniques (1971). As author of two chapters of the book Manual of
Wildlife Conservation, he was invited in several years to make lectures
before the National Conservation Commissioners Shortcourse at
He has been a research reviewer for the National Park Service, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, and NSF, and has reviewed many articles for the Journal of Wildlife Management, Environmental Management, and others.
While he has had no direct responsibility in the state Cooperative Extension Program, he has been very active there. He has lectured often at the 4-H Club Congress. He was co-director of a week long TVA workshop for the staff of the Division of Forestry, Fisheries and Wildlife Development.
He has been a major participant in many workshops sponsored by the Extension Division for state wildlife biologists, US Forest Service biologists, participated annually in the Junior Foresters Institute held on campus, and was a member of the Virginia Tech Speakers Bureau and a frequent lecturer to various groups.
Urban Design Concept Associates
He assembled a team of three resource experts
and did a brief ecological study of the impact of an interstate (I 70-N) on a
He was employed as a systems analyst for the Refuge System for one month and subsequent periods of several days each. He wrote a 400 page report, Operation Converge, which was later abstracted. He reported on the state of the System (it was not a system then), that it would be desirable to operate as a system, and how to do it. Many of his recommendations have been implemented.
Virginia Landmark Corporation
He was employed as a member of a resource
analysis team to work as an agent for an undisclosed major investment
corporation to analyze and provide the ecological design criteria for a large
mountainous year-round, recreationally-based community within 4 hours from
He also was employed to do an ecological
examination of a proposed housing development in
He designed the Woodland Resource Analysis Program (WRAP) for TVA. The system used on about 300 farm woodlands each year for many years. It has been shelved for small, personal computer applications.
He was employed for 3 days to examine the
Harland Bartholomew Associates
He developed with the staff of the
Nettleton Real Estate, Inc.
He designed a complex, highly integrated,
computer-based corporation dealing with the total resource systems of a 9000
acre area near
Dames and Moore
He participated with 25 scientists in the analysis of the environment impacts likely in the Antarctic resulting from NSF research and research operations there (1978).
Penn Virginia Resources Corporation
He has designed and created a land management
plan for the 68,000 acre tract in
