Bison research at TNC's Dunn Ranch Prairie

Just back from a great few days with Dr Andrew Berdahl (collective behavior) and Dr. Jeff Kerby (drone scientist extraordinaire) at The Nature Conservancy's Dunn Ranch Prarie in North-Western Missouri. Dunn Ranch is home to about 200 bison that roam around a restored section of the Central Tallgrass Prairie Ecoregion. We are using emerging drone technology and the unique ecosystem of Dunn Ranch to explore the collective movement of bison across the ranch, and its dependence on spatio-temporal patterns in vegetation and management practices.
