Congratulations to Alexandra Campione, SEER Lab Undergrad Research Assistant for her #UF University Scholars Program Award! Alex will be studying feeder trough visitation and feeding by free ranging white-tailed deer and exotic wildlife on a large high fenced wildlife preserve using camera trap data. This work is part of SEER Lab’s collaboration with the Cervidae Health Research Initiative (CHeRI) at UF. This project will expand ongoing efforts to understanding movement behaviors, Culicoides insect densities, and serological prevalence for blue tongue virus and epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus.
Dr. Blackburn is an Affiliate Scientist with CHeRI and co-coordinates wildlife capture and deer movement studies with the larger team. Learn more about this exciting collaboration lead by Dr. Samantha Wisely, UF Wildlife Ecology & Conservation Department.
