Poster 145: Michael Broughton – Monitoring Small Mammal Populations at Utah Bottoms

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Isaac Hart

As human activity continues to affect ecosystems across the world, it is important to study and understand the ecosystems that have yet to be substantially disturbed by human activity. In this study, I aim to obtain an accurate census of the local rodent population along the Dolores River Corridor of the Colorado Plateau to identify the relationships they have with their local ecosystem. I census the rodent populations by live-trapping in different microhabitats and seasons.
