Zoology Professor Collaborates on International Grant

Shawn Wilder is an international collaborator on an Australian Research Council grant funded to the University of Sydney and Taronga Conservation Society to study diet regulation by marsupial carnivores. Experiments will be done on Tasmanian devils, Northern quolls, and fat-tailed dunnarts to measure their nutrient targets and use this information to improve diets used in captive breeding programs.
