Conservation Ecology

Professor Ivette Perfecto is leading a team of students, including SNRE master's student Zu Dienle Tan, in Tapachula, Mexico to conduct a study on the migratory patterns of rodents. Setting 120 traps throughout a coffee plantation, the team is collecting data to analyze species distribution in the fragmented landscape. This research is one of dozens of international projects that SNRE is leading this summer.
