Chloe Howarth

Chloe was another important link in the chain of MSc students that have ran and worked on our long-running study of rattlesnakes in Osoyoos.   Chloe continued our studies on rattlesnake movement, expanding knowledge into the realm of juvenile animals.  She also conducted an extremely important ‘meta-analysis’ of all the telemetry work that has been conducted in our lab over the past two decades.  While carrying out her thesis work, she also extended Marcus Atkin’s work on changes in rattlesnake defensive behaviour to the Osoyoos population, as well as testing the efficacy of artificial underground chambers to provide snakes encountering fences with a means to avoid the scorching daytime heat.

Partners on Chloe’s project included Dr. Christine Bishop with Environment & Climate-Change Canada, and the Osoyoos Indian Band.
