Episode 44: Dr. John Benson's Algonquin Wolf Research 2007-2011 (What Good is a Wolf Part V)
In this episode, (Part V of a six-part series on wolf research in Algonquin Park), I chat with Dr. John Benson, who picked up the Algonquin Park wolf research baton in 2007, as part of his PhD studies at Trent University. Much of John’s work focused on taking a look at wolf-coyote hybridization and its impact on Algonquin’s wolf population, on territoriality, which researchers call spatial segregation and wolf and pup mortality risks amongst other very interesting topics.
Dr. Benson is now an Assistant Professor of Vertebrate Ecology with the School of Natural Resources a the University of Nebraska. For info on his work check out this video: https://mediahub.unl.edu/media/9745
