Dr. James Haynes received $153,406 from Niagara County Soil and Water Conservation District

Dr. Haynes, Environmental Science & Ecology, received $153,406 from the Niagara County Soil and Water Conservation District to conduct a Beneficial Use Impairment study on American Mink in the Eighteen Mile Creek Area of Concern.

Dr. Haynes’ study will establish mink presence or absence along the shoreline of Eighteenmile Creek; analyze habitat quality for mink; determine concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins/furans and mercury in the tissues of mink and their prey; and use a bioaccumulation model to determine whether mink health is at risk if they consume prey from the study area. He will be assisted by graduate students Paige Buchholz and Madeline Edwards, and undergraduates. The award will be administered by The Research Foundation for SUNY at The College at Brockport.
