Eastern Coyotes: Part Wolf, Part Dog, Extremely Adaptable

August 30, 2016, 7:00 pm - August 30, 2016, 8:30 pm
Location: James B. Hunt Jr. Library, 1070 Partners Way, Raleigh, NC 27606, USA
In this one-of-a-kind performance, Dr. Roland Kays will present the latest research about coyotes to a soundtrack performed by Senator Jaiz. Dr. Kays will explain how hybridizing with wolves and dogs has allowed these coyotes to rapidly evolve into a larger predator, helping them to fill the ecological niche left open by the local extinction of wolves in the East. Now that they have colonized our wild areas, coyotes have begun to be seen in urban areas, leading to new questions about their adaptability to city life. NC State students will help study this question during the Fall 2016 semester in connection with the eMammal citizen science project.
Free and Open to the Public

Microbiome: Unseen Opportunities for Agriculture and Health - See more at: http://harvest.cals.ncsu.edu/stewardsofthefuture/#sthash.DmrUrU1S.dpuf

Stewards of the Future conference.
Microbiomes are the next big thing in agricultural and life science research. The research to understand and potentially change the characteristics of microbiomes has far-reaching effects – the ability to raise crops and food animals with efficiency and more sustainablilty, eliminating genetic diseases in humans. NC State is proactively pursuing the potential benefits of microbiomes. We see microbiome research as game-changing, and we are striving to make North Carolina a global leader in the technology it produces. - See more at: http://harvest.cals.ncsu.edu/stewardsofthefuture/#sthash.DmrUrU1S.dpuf
