Dr. Suzy Worcester and AMWS student, John Inman, have been helping Bruce Delgado at the Fort Ord National Monument assess the effects of goat foraging on biodiversity in the extensive grasslands at the Monument. They are examning whether coyote brush encroachment into grasslands is reduced by goat browsing. A class of “BIO 211 Ecology, Evolution, Biodiversity and Plants” students observed the goats while learning about strategies for conserving biodiversity.
