New Wildlife Camera Study on Curassows (Cracidae)
In October Martin Senic, Ms. student, joined us for a research project on the life history of a common Pantanal cracid, the Bare-faced Curassow (Crax fasciolata). His alma mater is the University of Primorska, Faculty of Mathemathics, Natural Sciences and Information Techologies, Koper, Slovenia, our INAU II / CO.BRA partner institution. Martin's research is part of our long term wildlife camera study which Kathrin Burs, PhD student, initiated 3 years ago. In his research he will evaluate camera trap data obtained during these years to test habitat occupancy models correlated to different covariates such as vegetation coverage or anthropogenic impacts.
