I currently focus on the influence of environmental change on birds. My students and I value strengthening human perspective regarding the degree to which bird populations and distributions have changed over time. Part of developing that perspective is to help people understand the value of creating high quality benchmarks of where birds live now and how many we have. Future generations will thank us for having the foresight to give them such valuable legacies of information. My work has also involved studies of why communities fall apart after habitat fragmentation, evolution of life histories, and development of tracking devices to follow animals.
