We will study the evolution, phylogeny, physiology, behavior, population dynamics and interspecies interactions of birds with a focus on understanding current conservation crises. We will discuss relevant primary literature in class. During labs we will carry out studies of local bird migration, distribution, diets, abundance and diversity using current techniques. Labs will be in both the field and lab. Lab reports will be written as scientific papers. Field trips are required. Letter grade only. Prerequisite: BIOL 041E PO .
