    About This Project

    Each winter snowshoe hares turn from brown to white to blend in with the snowy landscapes. Because of warmer winters, hares become white before snow comes and their failed camouflage makes them easy targets for predators. We hypothesize that shorter snow seasons have a negative impact on hare populations and the carnivores that depend on them. To test this, we need to carry out spring field surveys and estimate hare population size.
