Small Mammal Ecology in a Fragmented Landscape
The small mammals that occur in Missouri’s prairies reflect a combination of factors, including climate, habitat preference, and chance. This presentation will discuss prominent prairie small mammals, their impact on their habitats, and what their presence may signal.
The webinar, to be held via Zoom, will be 45 minutes including a question and answer session. The webinar will be recorded, and sent to all registrants as well as posted to our YouTube channel.Register Here
