Joey Chisholm

Joey’s thesis focused on the use of cameras as a means to assess occupancy patterns of snowshoe hares.   Using the photo-database from a landscape array of wildlife cameras, coupled with LIDAR forest inventory information, Joey tested for variables that explained the distribution of hares across the northern forest.  He also examined whether pellet transects provided similar patterns to the camera surveys.

Joey conducted his work through the support of the John Prince Research Forest near Fort St. James, BC.   Dexter Hodder, Research Director for JPRF, was co-supervisor on Joey’s thesis.
