To Eat or Not to Eat? Developing Biomarkers for Diet Selection by HerbivoresCollege of Arts and Sciences Poster Presentations
Document TypeStudent Presentation
AbstractA major goal in conservation biology is to explain habitat use by animals. Remote sensing has been used for landscape-scale analysis of habitat features. However, studies that directly link specific parameters of habitat quality to selection by wildlife are needed at the microsite-scale before landscape-scale mapping can be validated. We used the sagebrush-pygmy rabbit system to develop spectral biomarkers that can predict how the quality of food influences habitat use.
