NEW MAPPING TOOL TRACKS ELK MIGRATION TO REDUCE BRUCELLOSIS RISKNew mapping tool tracks elk migration to reduce brucellosis risk

New mapping tool tracks elk migration to reduce brucellosis risk 

A team led by WMI postdoctoral fellow Jerod Merkle has created a new mapping tool that uses snow depth to predict when and where elk will migrate in springtime. That's when brucellosis is most likely to spill over from elk to cattle. Such forecasting will help managers keep elk and cattle from commingling during calving season.
