Using Cameras to Survey Small Carnivores

Principal Investigator(s) (PI): Dr. Matthew Gompper

Institution and/or Affiliation: University of Missouri

Project Description: This proposal, which will continue a project that has been underway since 2016, will enhance our understanding of the Prairie Fork Conservation Area (PFCA) fauna, provide insights into the possible use of restored prairie systems as a function of restoration age, and train and provide experiences to undergraduates in field techniques and experimental design. More specifically, this proposal aligns with two focal areas identified as 2018 emphasis areas: Occurrence and distribution of prairie-associated fauna and restoration of prairie-associated vertebrates and invertebrates.
