Applying proximal soil sensing to develop non-invasive population estimation methods for burrowing mammals

  • Description of the research topic

    The application of proximal soil sensing techniques (i.e. georadar, UAVs) to develop non-invasive census monitoring methods (population estimation) of endangered ground dwelling rodent colonies, such as European ground squirrels and Lesser blind mole rats, may help estimate actual population size.
