Episode 4 of Series 10:  Anthropogenic Behavior Change Transcript

Let's explore the effects of urbanization and industrialization on wildlife behavior, conservation strategies, and what the unique personalities of our urban wildlife neighbors can tell us about behavioral adaptation and societal inequities.

Guests:Dr. Lauren Stanton is a cognitive ecologist with expertise on behavioral adaptation to urban environments. She primarily studies raccoons, and other urban carnivores like coyotes, skunks, and foxes.  As a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley, she is working with Dr. Chris Schell to understand the effects of societal inequity on urban carnivores and their interactions with people.

Dr. Kathleen Church is an aquatic ecologist with a research background in fish personality and the conservation of freshwater aquatic habitats.  She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Quebec at Outaouais, and is working on a collaborative project with the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee, on fish habitat compensation projects, which are designed to compensate for the damage caused to fish and fish habitats by industrial development.
