Faculty Research and Creative Work: Turtle Monitoring

Turtle Monitoring
Peter A. Rosenbaum of the biological sciences faculty has won a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service grant to lead a multidisciplinary team to monitor elusive bog turtles at sites in Wayne and Seneca counties. The $58,000 grant, “Population Monitoring and Habitat Monitoring for the Bog Turtle at Two Sites in the Prairie Peninsula and Lake Plains Recovery Unit of New York,” gives Rosenbaum and three to four dozen students the opportunity to continue a research interest of more than a quarter-century and to intensively assess a rediscovered bog turtle site and a historically well-known one as part of a large, multistate monitoring project.
