Our Greater Honeyguides killing their Little Bee-eater hosts star in the ‘Sex, Lies and Dirty Tricks’ episode of BBC Natural History Unit’s “World’s Sneakiest Animals” TV series, presented by Chris Packham. The first broadcast is at 20h00 on 14 January 2015, on BBC Two. The Natural History Unit team visited us in Zambia in October 2014 to film, ably facilitated in the field by Jeroen Koorevaar and Nicholas Horrocks.
The Society for the Study of Evolution has awarded Jess Lund an R. C. Lewontin Graduate Research Excellence Grant, which will enable her to expand her investigations into the fascinating lives of honeyguides. This grant is awarded to students early in their PhD programmes to assist them in enhancing the scope of their research. Thank you to the SSE for their generous support of our work!
