I live down Funny River Road. The tree line in my back yard marks the edge of the National Wildlife Refuge. A doctoral student from Ohio, attending UAF, is conducting an interesting recording dissertation on anthropogenic (manmade/mechanical) noises that may permeate or penetrate the refuge. Tim Mullet wants to find out if moose have higher stress levels in areas of higher anthrophony. I would like to point out to Mr. Mullet that the moose inhabit my back yard between the house and greenhouse (and not the other half bordering the refuge) quite heavily – springtime, fall and winter.
