Wildlife Camera Collar Evaluation Study

The Forestry and Range Sciences Lab is hoping to find plant taxonimists to view video footage of moose and caribou either for a small amount of compensation or for co-authorship on the resulting publications. The lab seeks 3-4 people with knowledge of the plant species found in the alpine, montane, and boreal systems of NE British Columbia, as well as the Kenai region of Alaska.
