Lab: BNR 206
At the present time I am working on several questions in avian behavioral and physiological ecology. These include the relationship among foraging proficiency, social dominance and survival in juveniles, the role of individual variation in energy expenditure on reproductive success and the development of a hormonal response to stress in young birds.
