Abstract/Description

Species richness and evenness are useful determinants when evaluating biodiversity within an area. There are many methods to collect this information, but camera trapping is one of the most useful methods because it requires minimal researcher present in the field. This allows for the most natural utilization of terrain by wildlife. Camera trapping methods were used at Clark's River National Wildlife Refuge to determine species richness and evenness at various sites across the refuge. Specifically, nine cameras were deployed at nine sites from the months of June to November of 2022. Camera data has been collected and is currently being analyzed.
