Conversations with the Faculty: Individuality and Togetherness in Prairie Dogs and People
April 27 at 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT| $65
Speaker: Barbara Laymon, PhD, MPH
In recent years, in efforts to save the species, black-tailed prairie dogs have been translocated to new environments; enhanced survival rates for prairie dogs moved as family groups have been reported. Here, I will review the prairie dog family response to the challenge of moving according to Papero’s (2018) systems model for family assessment. The dynamic process of Individuality and Togetherness, along with implications for public policy, will be explored.
A maximum of 1.5 CEU/CEs are available.
