First Tuesday Lecture

"Long-term Study of Drift Fence Captures of Small Animals at University of Mississippi Field Station"

SPEAKER: Dr. Edmund D. Keiser, Professor Emeritus and Chairman Emeritus, Department of Biology, University of Mississippi

Population assessments over long time periods are essential for small animal management particularly in habitats relatively unaffected by human activities. A year-long drift fence monitoring project ending in 1992 is being repeated 20 years later at the University of Mississippi Field Station to see what changes, if any, have occurred in the amphibian, reptile, and small mammal species presence in a habitat where human activities have been minimal.
