Birds in the Hood
Paige Warren, PhD, has birds in mind as she collects new data and analyses old data about the presence of birds in cities. Her research aims to understand more about the resources urban birds use, how habitat fragmentation affects their behavior, and what we can do to improve their daily existence. Learn more at her talk on September 22. Register »
Habitat fragmentation, increasing homogeneity of the vegetation, and the loss of top predators all threaten the biological diversity of New England’s deciduous forests. Understanding the history and ecology of these forests is critical for sustaining their productivity and preventing the loss of biological diversity. On September 30, Professor Robert Askins, PhD, will present a talk about the major threats to our local forests and new insights for their protection from studies of similar forests in East Asia and Europe.
