Top Dog? The Ecological Role of the Coyote in Northeastern Forests
Tuesday, March 28, 2017
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Gateway Center
Event Description: Once restricted to the western plains, coyotes colonized New York State in the 1920s and today are the largest and most widespread canine predator around. Join ESF’s Dr. Jacqueline Frair for a night of “coyote tales,” based on extensive and novel research conducted by her team. How many coyotes are there in New York State, what do they eat, and what is their impact on other species in the region? Learn all this and more about the new “top dog” in the eastern forest region.
Dr. Frair is Associate Professor in Environmental and Forest Biology at ESF. She is also Associate Director of ESF’s Roosevelt Wild Life Station, a research center focused on preserving our wildlife heritage and imperiled species worldwide. She and her students have worked with a wide range of mammals from bats to beaver, white-tailed deer, foxes and wolves. Her students’ work spans the globe, extending to studies of jaguar in the Brazilian Pantanal, and lion-human conflicts in Africa. She teaches several popular courses at ESF including Applied Wildlife Science, Wildlife Field Techniques, and Landscape Ecology.
A reception will follow the lecture. Admission to the lecture and reception is free. Parking will be available on the ESF campus (download parking permit at: http://www.esf.edu/efb/travislecture/). The event is sponsored by the Dale L. Travis Public Lecture Series at SUNY ESF.
