Project Summary

Development of Platforms to Access Data on Sustainable Biodiversity on the Georgia Southern Campus

Drs. Michelle Cawthorn, Ray Chandler, Lance McBrayer, & Jamie Roberts, Dept. of Biology ($32,572)

A critical measure of a sustainable university is that it operates without reducing the biodiversity on its own campus. However, the primary impediments to sustaining biodiversity on campus are a lack of data on what species occur on campus and lack of mechanism to readily access whatever data do exist. During Phase 1, their study provided a comprehensive inventory of the vertebrate biodiversity on the GS campus. During Phase 2, they sought to make these data available to members of the campus community, and the general public, via a website and smart-phone application.
