AWA Tuesday Talk: Do You Brake for Rattlesnakes?

March 10, 2010 - 2:00am

Particularly susceptible to being killed by traffic on roads, the prairie rattlesnake (Crotalus v. viridis) is designated as a species that "may be at risk" by Alberta Sustainable Development.  The Alberta Endangered Species Conservation Committee has legally designated this animal as "data deficient".  Adam Martinson will present the results of his research investigating their spatial behaviour and patterns of road mortality risk.  It is hoped that the results of his and others' research can be used to lessen the impacts roads are having on Southern Alberta snake species.

Adam has recently studied at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the University of Calgary's Faculty of Environmental Design.  He currently works as an environmental consultant in Calgary.
