Bio/Research

Broadly stated, the main research interests in this lab. concern the characterization and interpretation of patterns of behavioural (mainly song), morphological and genetic variation, among individuals, among populations or among species. We work primarily on passerine birds, and recent or current studies include: covariation in morphological, allozyme, mtDNA and song characteristics in the South American sparrow Zonotrichia capensis, ontogeny and discrimination of vocal dialects in Zonotrichia capensis, evaluation of the Acoustic Adaptation Hypothesis in the explanation of bird song-structure, evolutionary convergence among south American seedeating birds, and an ecomorphological study of the Neotropical furnariid radiation.
