As part of General Mammalogy (WFSC 401) taught by Dr. Jessica Light, enrolled students participate in small mammal trapping on the grounds around the Biodiversity Research and Teaching Collections. Most recently (November 30th), the course captured 18 specimens representing three species: hispid cotton rat (Sigmodon hispidus), white-footed deer mouse (Peromyscus leucoups), and the fulvous harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys fulvescens).
