Wildlife Research

Ames has long been famous for Quail Research.

However, wildlife research at Ames has included work on Coopers Hawks, the ecology of small mammals, mesopredators, quail, beaver, songbirds, deer, coyotes, and various relationships between them.  The breadth of study has been amazing and many wildlife graduate students have accomplished their projects on Ames. These projects often embrace the entire property because animals have wide ranges or the study needs a wide representation of habitats.
