Research Interests

Research in my lab focuses on the ecology, behavior, and conservation of birds and other terrestrial vertebrates.  Major themes in my projects and those of my students include the effects of forest management on habitat selection (e.g., use of managed pine savannas by grassland birds, impacts of selective logging on bottomland bird communities), morphological and behavioral strategies associated with migration (e.g., evolution of wing shape in migrant birds, stopover ecology of migrants), impacts of hormones on behavior (e.g., effects of testosterone on alternative reproductive strategies in male birds), and conservation of rare species (e.g., management of Red-cockaded Woodpeckers).
