Where's the squirrel?
Published in 15/4/2014
The little red squirrel had settled all over the country for many centuries. The disappearance of forests and woods where it used to roam have led to its scarcity. A while back there were news of its return, but where does it walk now? That's what a study of CESAM/UA intends to find out.
Rita Gomes Rocha created the red squirrel project in Portugal with the aim to better understand this species, their behavior patterns and identify factors that may influence its expansion. The data will be the subject of study within her postdoctoral work at UA.
