Video Highlights:  Unmanned Aircraft Aid Biologist’s Research

Dr. Jen Forbey and collaborators conducted field studies this past summer in south-central Idaho as part of a National Science Foundation project to explore the functional links between habitat features and habitat use. The team used unmanned aircraft in order to assess the quality of habitat for pygmy rabbits on a much larger scale than had ever been done before.
