With support from the National Science Foundation, wildlife ecologist Chris Wilmers and his team developed a collar to help them learn more about the behavior, metabolism and habitat preferences of mountain lions. In addition to its location, the animal’s behavior and physiology are recorded in unprecedented detail. They’re learning more about how the cats respond to different stimuli, such as climate, and interactions with other animals, and changes in the landscape created by development.
