Bats in the Caribbean | Explore Research
The Florida Museum has produced dozens of videos for their series "Explore Research," which highlights research done at The University of Florida. The Museum serves as a conduit to disseminate highly technical university-based research to the public in a language they can understand. Explore Research is an area of the Museum's public exhibits that has been built just for this purpose. Each video, along with a 3-dimensional exhibit, runs for several months and can be seen by Museum visitors for free. The video below is a video that we produced with the Museum about our research in the Caribbean. It features Ph.D. candidate Angelo Soto-Centeno.
Primate DNA tells us about the history of an African rainforest
October 29, 2012
We know that all animals are dependent on their environment. They need resources like food and mates. If their habitat changes, we expect that to have an impact on their population. For example, if their forest expands, we expect that their population will grow. Alternatively, if their habitat shrinks, then their population will likely shrink too. Because of this, if we know the size of an animals population in the past, we can make hypotheses about what has happened to their environment in the past.
