Congrats to Aeroecology Lab Member Amanda Crandall for winning one of this year’s William J. Benton Graduate Awards for graduate students who have excelled in research, academics, and professional service. Amanda is the fourth lab member to receive this award. Please congratulate Amanda when you see her! We are very proud of her achievements.
Check out the recent UDaily article about our collaboration with Princeton University researchers to map migratory stopover in the eastern U.S.
“Underscoring the conservation value of these stopover sites, the study indicates that the protection of forested land is necessary, particularly in landscapes dominated by agriculture, to create a network of suitable habitats through which songbirds can travel. As many bird populations face rapid declines, stopover site preservation could help ease the burden of an otherwise vulnerable migration journey and help sustain healthy bird populations.”
