Prof. John Fryxell

Prof. John Fryxell, Integrative Biology, was recently interviewed by Smithsonian Magazine for an article on moose and caribou conservation efforts.

He commented on a recent study in which researchers tracked numbers of moose, caribou and wolves. As people hunted more moose, wolves left the area and the caribou population grew. Fryxell said a similar strategy could be used in Ontario. He studies how animals move in response to resources and predators.
