Miranda is a PhD student who joined the Shoemaker and Matocq labs in April 2016. She came to University of Nevada, Reno from Washington State University in Pullman, WA where she completed her M.S. with Dr. Lisa Shipley investigating pygmy rabbits’ foraging ecology. Here, at UNR, Miranda is researching pygmy rabbit distribution across Nevada and southeastern Oregon, focusing on demography, genetic connectivity, and key landscape characteristics that pygmy rabbits require. To learn more about Miranda, the ongoing pygmy rabbit research, and to see updates from the field, visit her website.
The first chapter from Miranda’s dissertation is currently in review at Journal of Mammalogy:
- Crowell, M.M., Matocq, M.D., Shoemaker, K.T. Submitted. Ideal trapping conditions for increased trap success of pygmy rabbits (Brachylagus idahoensis) across the Great Basin. Journal of Mammalogy.
