BARS September 2015 Meeting

September 1, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Marconi Beach

Robert P. CookOur speaker for the evening will be Dr. Robert Cook, Wildlife Ecologist, at the Cape Cod National Seashore, who will make a presentation on the rarely seen birds and animals at the Cape Cod National Seashore. He works closely with government and university scientists to identify long term wildlife monitoring needs, and develops and tests monitoring protocols to meet those needs. Although standardized sampling is focused on pond-breeding amphibians, he also collects data on reptiles, birds, and mammals of interest and has overseen an inventory of herpetofauna at 13 northeastern National Park Service sites. His educational background is:

  • B.S. 1975. Wildlife Biology. SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry, Syracuse, NY.
  • M.S. 1978. Wildlife Biology. University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. Thesis “Effects of acid precipitation on embryonic mortality of spotted salamanders (Ambystoma maculatum) and Jefferson salamanders (A. jeffersonianum) in the Connecticut Valley of Massachusetts”.
  • Ph.D. 1996. Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior. City University of New York. Dissertation “Movement and ecology of eastern box and painted turtles repatriated to human-created habitat”.

This will be a most interesting presentation with the rare opportunity learn things about “our” national park. Bring a friend.
