Dr. Greg Keller Featured on Boston Globe Video!

Dr. Greg Keller, associate professor of biology, got to show off his “road kill” collection to a reporter and a videographer from The Boston Globe recently. On Thursday, July 30, 2009, The Globe featured Dr. Keller on its website (which you can watch by clicking the video below or linking to The Globe). Keller uses the creatures for hands-on instruction with his students and, as he points out in the video, as part of Gordon’s growing collection for the museum of natural history. (Most other collections build their museums with road kill animals as well.)

But Dr. Keller and his students have also been involved in an exciting summer research project documenting LIVE animals in the woods along the North Shore. Who knew studying biology and other sciences at Gordon could be so intensely academic and, well, so cool?!
