Eastern Coyotes: Part Wolf, Part Dog, Extremely Adaptable
August 31, 2016, 7:00 pm - August 31, 2016, 8:30 pm
Location: James B. Hunt Jr. Library, 1070 Partners Way, Raleigh, NC 27606, USAIn 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
