Lecturer of Biology

Ms. Bennett’s research interests fall under the broad category of wildlife ecology. She and her students are currently working on two projects: determining whether treatment with permethrin lowers tick infestations of small mammals at Presque Isle State Park, and comparing small mammal diversity in locations dominated by invasive plant species to those dominated by native plants.
