Road fauna

Road fauna or Roadkill is a scientific term describing animals rode over by vehicles on roads and freeways. James Simmons' classic work Feathers and Fur on the Turnpike was published in 1938.

The Simmons Society was founded by Roger M. Knutson to further studies of road fauna.

The number of road fauna present on a given stretch of freeway is said to follow a poisson distribution.

Several "Roadkill" cookbooks have been published.
