Update: Dylan Tennant, a 2013 biological science graduate, explains her research on the kangaroo rat with BBC Earth Unplugged.

A BBC crew recently filmed graduating biological science student Dylan Tennant at CSU's Desert Studies Center in the Mojave Desert, discussing her research on the foraging behavior of kangaroo rats. They also filmed her conducting live trapping of the rats for her study of the rodent community. Tennant is a scholar in the Southern California Ecosystems Research Program, working with Paul T. Stapp, professor of biological science. The segment is part of BBC Earth Unplugged on YouTube and is scheduled to air soon. Tennant plans to earn a single-subject credential to teach high school biology and environmental science.
