Dr. Seth Newsome began collaborating with the Cook County Coyote Project in 2010, initiating a new avenue for research. He has extensive experience as an animal ecologist around the globe and uses his unique background to identify energy flow through ecological communities. Key to his research is the study of diet variations and how those shift in response to anthropogenic factors, thereby affecting the life histories of wildlife. His expertise in stable isotope analysis is allowing us to look at wildlife diets in a highly scientific method; we are grateful for his partnership in helping to better understand the urban coyote diet (among the diets of many other species).
