About This Project

Within reptiles, snakes are the group most affected by roads due to factors intrinsic to their ecology and their complex patterns of movement, which leads them to use different habitat types for basking, shelter and foraging. In this study we propose to identify how landscape heterogeneity, seasonality, and ecological aspects of different snake species associate with patterns of mortality on a road. Such information is essential to help mitigate the impacts of roads on snake communities.
