October 18 – The Ecology of the Boise River Watershed – On this program, rebroadcast from 2013, I talked with ecologist Dr. Eric Yensen, an instructor of ecology, evolution, conservation biology, mammalogy, and natural history, about the interaction between species that populate the Boise River watershed area and beyond and how the ecosystem functions. Why do we care about aspens? What good is a ground squirrel? How do the various species interrelate?
This is an encore episode of Elemental Idaho. You can hear the original broadcast here.
