Dr. Jonathan Richardson: Road Salt and Rats – College Biology Meets Dirty Jobs

In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Jonathan L. Richardson, assistant professor of biology. Dr. Richardson discusses his research on the ways roads — and the rock salt we spread on them — affect the ecology of their surrounding habitats. We also talk about his research with students in the PC Conservation Lab (www.pcconservationlab.org), including their work on the migratory behavior of rats in El Salvador, Brazil, and New York City.
