Status: Completed, Study ran 2008-2011, completed successfully.

Kim is examining how life history, ecology, behaviour and anthropogenic activities interact to affect the conservation status of North American scavengers. Ultimately the goal is to explain why some species are threatened, but others are not, why conservation status for a species can differ from region to region, and how cooperative behaviours among species needs to be considered.
