Where the wild things go
How do certain environmental and/or anthropogenic factors influence animal movement patterns? This project would include developing ecological models based on publicly available movement data for one or more species of interest. Skills gained would be in R programming, GIS, and animal movement ecology.
Friend or foe? Local human-wildlife interactions
As human populations grow and increasingly overlap with wildlife, there are many potential interactions. This project could investigate the social and/or environmental aspects of human-wildlife interactions based on the student's local neighborhood, town, region, or country.
