Canid and Ungulate Ecology Lab

My research focuses on the effects fine scale habitat attributes have on predation risk. By backtracking gray wolf trails in winter and using GPS radio collars to find ungulate kill locations, I'll determine where wolves are successful at encountering and/or killing woodland caribou and moose. Using a RSF I'll describe the probability of encounter or death as a function of landscape attributes - which can be applied to the region using the Ontario land cover database.
