Some rodenticides (rodent poisons) have the ability to bioaccumulate in the food chain and can potentially affect a predator or scavenger that ingests an animal that consumed the poison bait. In this talk, Dr. Murray will present the findings of her research investigating exposure to rodenticides in four species of birds of prey in Massachusetts. Maureen Murray, DVM, is the Director of Tufts Wildlife Clinic and an Associate Clinical Professor at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. In addition to her ongoing research on rodenticides in birds of prey, Dr. Murray provides medical and surgical care to native New England wildlife and teaches veterinary students about wildlife medicine in the clinic and in the classroom.
