Challenges of Urbanization
Most species do not tolerate urbanization, yet a few persist and even thrive in cities. How do these species differ? In collaboration with Paul Martin, we are striving to answer this question and to better understand how birds cope with urban challenges.
We have recently launched the Urban Birds of Ontario project – a citizen science effort to document all the bird species that do and do not breed in Ontario’s 15 metro areas.
Current students on this project:
