Trees housing mammals needed for research study

Post by pdbrandt » Mon Apr 16, 2012 8:17 pm

Dear NTS

Dr. Roland Kays is a zoologist at NC State and a newly recruited member of the research faculty at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. He studies arboreal mammals in temperate and tropical forests and is looking for trees that house mammals in the piedmont of North Carolina to validate the use of a new series of motion activated cameras. Once the new cameras prove themselves here in the piedmont he will use them to capture images of tropical mammals like the ones mentioned here: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0 ... index.html (see also: http://alloveralbany.com/archive/2009/0 ... he-fishers)

I am wondering if any of you know of trees in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area that house flying squirrels, raccoons, porcupines, opossums, etc that Dr. Kays could outfit with his new cameras.

Thank you,
Patrick
