Prof Discusses Moose, Caribou Conservation With Smithsonian Magazine


Prof. John Fryxell

Prof. John Fryxell, Integrative Biology, was recently interviewed by Smithsonian Magazine for an article on moose and caribou conservation efforts.

He commented on a recent study in which researchers tracked numbers of moose, caribou and wolves. As people hunted more moose, wolves left the area and the caribou population grew. Fryxell said a similar strategy could be used in Ontario. He studies how animals move in response to resources and predators.
