Michael Lucid, the Idaho biologist has scaled mountains and crawled through forest duff to track the Panhandle's lesser known wildlife. After a five year study, he has a wealth of information about gastropods, amphibians and forest carnivores. He's also solved a 100-year-old mystery related to a missing snail species and discovered a new variety of slug.
After five years of work, an Idaho Department of Fish and Game biologist recently finished one of the most comprehensive records ever compiled about what lives in the Idaho Panhandle’s forests, fields and wetlands. Michael Lucid and collaborators found nearly 200 species at 2,300 survey sites across millions of acres of public and private lands.
