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