Small pieces of island fox whisker can reveal big data on island fox diet and behavior.
Analyzing stable isotopes in slivers of island fox whisker, Juliann Schamel (Research grant recipient 2018 and 2019) has been uncovering the range of diet eaten by island foxes, drought impacts on their diet, and a new understanding of how some island foxes use marine resources.
Your scientific research could also benefit island fox survival and the management of rare and endangered species.
