Mammal Skulls Workshop
This one-day lab workshop will introduce participants to the identification of native land mammals in California and Nevada. By the end of the class, you should have the tools to identify our native lagomorphs, marsupial, ungulates, large rodents, carnivores and odontocete cetaceans to species; and insectivores, small rodents, and chiropterans to genus. A brief test using examples of what might be found as stomach contents, in an archaeological site, or on a beach is included. The workshop will be taught by zoologist Dr. Douglas Long.
