Favorite Animal in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem: Coyote

Kevin Taylor has been part of the Wildlife Expeditions of Teton Science Schools team since 2002. Kevin has a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Masters of Science in Botany.  His biological research experience includes several wildlife research projects, as well as mapping distribution of rare plant species and the effects of global climate change on mountain plants.  He believes that it is critical to include modern humans when discussing natural history and ecology, and he studies and teaches ethnobotany and ethnozoology.  Hunting, gathering, gardening, raising chickens and bees, and constantly performing ethnological experiments in Jackson Hole allow Kevin to become increasingly intimate with the ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and interpret the human history of the GYE with a hands-on perspective.
