Comparing Populations - Collaborators studying decisions geese make during migration
by Logan Jackson
The University of Missouri and Texas A&M University-Kingsville are collaborating on a project to track geese, in North America and Western Europe, with technologies fitted-to-neck collars to learn more about the decisions geese make during their migration. The team will be studying how those decisions affect population numbers, if at all. The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the geese in both locations, with insights into how decision making explains population change in other genetically similar species.
