Consequences of rain for bird populations, dispersal & migration movements, sexual selection, brood parasitism, habitat selection of declining species, life history evolution…

…These are some of the topics we research. Currently, we work in two very different systems; we study birds living in wet montane forests of Costa Rica, and grassland-dependent species living in the tallgrass prairies of the central USA.
