Life, uh, Finds a Way

In our recently published paper “Quantifying wildlife responses to conservation fencing in East Africa“, we developed a classification scheme to explore mammalian behaviors around the Lake Nakuru National Park boundary fence. At least 27 different mammal species cross in and out of the national park, and fence maintenance has inconclusive effects. In the words of Dr. Ian Malcolm, “Life finds a way.”

Also, we can use factors such as microhabitat, season, human activity, and connectivity to predict whether certain taxa will cross the fence.

Check out a piece I wrote about this work here.
