Mammal maniac

What type of work do you do at
the University?
t'm a curator of mammals at
rho Museum of Zoology here ac
che University of Michigan anod
I'm a professor in the Deportment
of Ecology and Evolutionary Biol-
ogy.
What's your favorite animal?
I always thought that fishing
hats are really tool. These are
hats that have big feet and they
fly over the surfate of the water,
and they drag their feet over the
water. They actually gaff fish
with their claws. So, those are
fun. There's an aquatit mole that
lives in Eussiatcalled a desman. It
has amazing thick, lush fur - it
lives very north in Eussia - and

this wonderful, curved, long
sthnoz with big whiskers tom-
lug off to the side. I like looking
at that.
Why do you enjoy studying ani-
mals?
Animals are endlessly variable.
There's room for infinite turio-
icy and infinite learning.
What is your main role at the
University?
Ihave two roles and, to me,
they are both very important.
One is that I'm a professor. I tenth
and I do 'researth in etology and
evolutionary biology. I also have
grad students. We are all now
involved on studies on climate
thange and its impact on lotal

mammal faunas.
My setond role is as a turator
here at the museum, where I'm
responsible for a pretty large
researth collection of mam-
mals.
What courses do you teach?
Most of the time sinte I've
been here I taught a mammalogy
tourse cailed "Biology of Mam-
mals." I have also taught a vari-
ety of other courses. For the last
couple of. decades, it's been ani-
mal diversity and I really enjoy
doing that. We try to introduce
people to the diversity of ani-
mals - everything from protozoa
to mammals, and everything in
between.
