IAMAn ecologist. I have studied pythons and marsh rabbits in the Everglades, squirrels, and endangered bats. AMA!
Hi everyone, my name is Adia Sovie, and I am a PhD candidate at the University of Florida.
My MS research was on the impact of Burmese pythons on mammals in the Everglades.
The focus of my PhD research at UF is the ecology and distribution of grey and fox squirrels.
I have worked around the world, and my interests include invasion ecology, predator conservation, human-wildlife conflict, and the Red Sox!
I also like to curl up and read with my cat, Kidiri (Swahili for squirrel!).
I am doing this as part of an AMA series with the University of Florida/IFAS Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation.
I have to go now. This was fun! Thanks for all the thoughtful questions!
