RALEIGH, N.C. (March 29, 2011) – It’s all in the numbers, when the Centennial Campus Center for Wildlife Education presents “1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish – What Dr. Seuss Did Not Teach About Counting Fish (or Wildlife)” at 4 p.m. on April 13.

The free program is part of the Fisheries and Wildlife Seminar series, a partnership between faculty and students in the Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology Program at N.C. State University and the biologists, managers and educators with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.

Dr. Beth Gardner, an assistant professor in the NCSU Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology Program, will present a set of case studies demonstrating the difficulty in assessing population demographics and habitat relationships. New advances in capture-recapture and occupancy modeling will be the focus of this presentation, with examples ranging from plant species to carnivores.

The seminar is preceded by a social with free beverages and snacks at 3:30 p.m.
