    About This Project

    Forest roads fragment wildlife habitat and can be a significant stressor for wildlife species. We want to understand the influence roads have on animals. We are examining how forest roads affected the stress response of bears in the Blackfoot Valley, MT. We used scat-detection dogs to collect scats and analyzed the stress hormones they contain. We used these as measures of physiological stress, nutritional stress, and reproductive activity.
