CHEP On-going Monitoring Project
The Colby Hill Ecological Project has generated voluminous reports compiling and analyzing field data. These are housed at VFF’s office in Bristol, and you are welcome to stop by and peruse them.
The Executive Summary for field studies through 2004 is available in PDF format
The Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to read .PDF files.
The 2007 field season is under way, and CHEP researchers will undertake the annual bird count, amphibian and reptile monitoring, large mammal tracking, and small mammal and ground beetle surveys. Mammalogist Jan Decher continues to use a movement-activated camera to photograph wildlife. When an animal passes the camera, it snaps a photo. Take a look at his results below. We'll post more as they come in.
Here's the camera that takes the photos. ©Jan Decher/CHEP 2006
