Video: Cotton rats, switchgrass, and PhD student Angela Larsen

Posted on Friday, June 12th, 2015 by UNCG Research.

UNCG PhD student Angela Larsen looks at how individual behaviors of cotton rats create population level impacts and change community structures. By observing the rodents, which are native to the Southeastern United States, Larsen also assesses how planting of native switchgrasses as biofuel crops might affect biodiversity. Larsen’s research is funded in part by NCASI and Weyerhaeuser. She is also an EPA STAR Fellow and has received a Robert R. Bryden Grant from the NC Academy of Science.
