Summer Schlageter Graduate Group in Ecology, MS Candidate University of California, Davis firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer is interested in mammalian conservation and has experience trapping and studying small mammal populations in California, Washington, and Colorado. Before coming to UC Davis she worked several field seasons for the US Forest Service mammal trapping as part of demography studies.
Her Master’s project will utilize a long-term data set collected on a population of golden-mantled ground squirrels (Callospermophilus lateralis) at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Gothic, Colorado. She is particularly interested in body mass dynamics and effects variables such as climate have on survival.
