It’s hard to believe, but fieldwork for the deer project is almost done. We’re moving ahead with analysis now, which is exciting- what will we learn from all of our hard-earned data?
As we begin to piece together the story about deer, climate, habitat, and predation hidden in our huge data set, we will be sharing our results with colleagues and the public. Below I’ve listed some of the professional meetings where you can find our work. If you’d like to talk about this work, either at one of these conferences or otherwise, please get in touch
