Coming to the International Society for Behavioral Ecology conference in New York City from July 31st to August 5th? Five of us will be giving talks there about our research in Zambia (and in Claire’s case, Mozambique):

  • Marjorie Sorensen on ‘Why do migratory birds sing in winter?’
  • Claire Spottiswoode on ‘Honeyguides preferentially initiate mutualistic interactions with humans that signal their intention to cooperate’
  • Wenfei Tong on ‘Genetic signatures of monogamy and maternally inherited host specialization in the brood parasitic cuckoo finch’
  • Jolyon Troscianko on ‘Edge disruption and survival in wild ground nesting birds’
  • Jared Wilson-Aggarwal on ‘Microhabitat selection in ground nesting birds’
