|BROWN BAG LUNCH LECTURE - February 15, 2018
Living on the Edge, San Bernardino Kangaroo Rats
and Fire, Floods, and Development
presented by Geary Hund, U.S. Fish and Wildlife
The endangered San Bernardino kangaroo rat, lives in a unique and dynamic environment, the habitat which forms in river bottoms between floods. This survival strategy ensures that its habitat will be refreshed from time to time by flooding and may reduce competition from other animals, but it also means that it lives in constant risk of being flooded out of house and home. Find out how this resilient, adaptable, animal, and the plants and animals it coexists with, are managing in an ever changing environment and what its prospects are for the future.
