Population Dynamics and Avian Ecology
The effect of abiotic factors (climate, flooding, etc.)on avian survival and reproductive rates, and the changes in demographic parameters that may result from long-term climate changes or anthropogenic landscape influences. I am currently working on the population ecology of the Northern Spotted Owl in southern Oregon, Adelie Penguins in Antarctica, and tropical forest birds in Puerto Rico.
