• The Aeroecology Program is a research laboratory at the University of Delaware that began in 2011 under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Buler.
  •  We work to advance the development and integration of remotely-sensed and field-collected data to quantify and track the movements and ecology of airborne wildlife (e.g., birds, bats, and insects) with the philosophy that the airspace is habitat.
  • We are a leading research group in the use of weather surveillance radar as a biological remote-sensing tool.
  • Our research is often focused on the stopover ecology of birds during migration.
  • However, we also conduct research more broadly in landscape ecology and conservation biology through modeling species distributions and habitat relationships over broad geographic scales and assessing wildlife response to habitat restoration/management and human development.
  • It is our hope that this website will promote the exchange of ideas and information in the area of aeroecology.
