"A lot of that classic, natural history approach to mammalogy has gone by the wayside. Now that a lot of it is molecular, people are using GIS (geographic information system) and all these new technologies. It's almost like mammalogy 2.0 - you go back over what we thought we knew and look at it with whatever new technique you're trying to test out. It will either verify what you already knew and give you more details or overturn what you thought you knew. It's never boring."
