Current Research Projects

 

We conduct research on bird species throughout the state of Nebraska. Some of our recent research focuses are:

How does fall hunting pressure influence male and female habitat decisions and behavior?

Do the effects of fall hunting pressure carry-over to influence breeding decisions in the spring?

What are the consequences of changing landscapes for prairie bird behaviors, reproductive outcomes, and habitat decisions?

What are the consequences of land-use change and climate change on behavioral decisions and population dynamics?

We address these questions in a variety of systems in Nebraska. Click on the links below to learn more about what we do!
