EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Like many field biologists, Dr. Jason Munshi-South got his start chasing mammals in exotic, far-off places like Borneo and Gabon. Nowadays, Jason and his students at CUNY's Baruch College conduct their field studies in the urban wilds of New York City. The Munshi-South lab has found that NYC parks provide important patches of habitat for wildlife – by which they mean white-footed mice, salamanders, and coyotes, not cockroaches and pigeons. Jason explains to host Holly Menninger how the Big Apple provides a unique laboratory for studying the ecology, evolution, and behavior of these special city-dwellers. (Image credit)
