Investigaciones en curso

Desde el borrego cimarrón en las Sierras de California hasta el berrendo en el centro de Wyoming, estudiamos qué hace funcionar a los ungulados y sus poblaciones.

Cada uno de nuestros proyectos es un poco diferente, pero tendemos a tener temas comunes en la mayoría de nuestros proyectos: ecología nutricional, un enfoque individual y datos a largo plazo. Al estudiar la ecología nutricional, podemos aprender cómo el hábitat y otros factores ambientales influyen en los individuos y luego comprender cómo los individuos se unen para formar una población completa. Al observar a los individuos y las poblaciones durante muchos años, comenzamos a tener una mejor idea de lo que impulsa a las poblaciones.

Check out some of our projects below to see what we’ve been up to!

Bighorn Sheep Nutrition Disease Project

El proyecto de caza de antílope

Proyecto de ciervos mula de Wyoming

A bighorn sheep ewe is laying down in short alpine plants. She has closed her eyes just slightly and is leaning against a lamb. The lamb is facing away from the camera, with a hesitant look on its face.

A mule deer buck with large antlers (4 points on each side) and a thick neck stands in chest-high sagebrush, looking directly at the camera. The buck is wearing a GPS collar around his neck. The buck’s coat matches the colors of the sagebrush.

Casper Mule Deer Project

Meeteetse Moose Project

Proyecto de la ecología de los venados y uapití

A mule deer in her summer coat walks up a hill covered in red soil. There are a few juniper trees and patches of short shrubs, but otherwise the landscape is mostly soil. She is wearing a GPS collar, and appears to be glancing at the camera out of the side of her eye.

A large female moose stands in the open sagebrush, looking directly at the camera. Her coat is thick and healthy, and the sky behind her is a clear blue.
