She actually seeks it out, hunting for clues about larger ecological trends. Garneau records it all on a free smartphone app, <a href="http://epicollectserver.appspot.com/project.html?name=RoadkillGarneau">EpiCollect</a>.<p>Standing by the side of the road in upstate New York, phone in hand, Garneau peers down at a dead, bloody and smelly skunk.<p>She takes a picture of the carcass and opens the app to input data, including location, time of day, the road's speed limit and whether the carcass has been scavenged.
