Students win award for tree-kangaroo mapping

Students from The School for Field Studies have been recognised for their tree-kangaroo mapping project with a 2014 Undergraduate Research Award.

Wesley Hauser from Indiana and Erin Emmons from Massachusetts conducted the research project “Putting Lumholtz’s Tree-Kangaroo on the Map: Using Present Distribution to Assess Habitat Requirements and Identify Areas for Further Surveys” at the Yungaburra School for Field Studies.

The students called upon the expertise of Wet Tropics cartographer Mike Stott, who mentored the students, teaching them data processing and analysis for the mapping component of their project.

The Undergraduate Research Awards recognise excellence in academic work completed by students as part of an education abroad program.
