Peter is interested in isolating the factors that control population abundance in migratory and resident birds.
Robert is interested in agroecology and land use policy issues in Central America and Mexico.
Thomas Brandt Ryder
Thomas Brandt is interested in reproductive strategies of birds. My current study on gray catbirds examines how landscape connectivity and urbanization influence rates of extra-pair paternity among populations.
Scott is interested in how events throughout the annual cycle of migratory birds are interconnected and how multiple mechanisms, both natural and human-related, operate to limit and regulate these bird populations.
Mary is interested in environmental education; developing and implementing science-based educational materials, programs and outreach events; writing and editing nature and conservation oriented publications
Nora is interested in urban ecology and stable-isotope ecology
Robert is interested in habitat selection of wintering neotropical migratory birds and use of neotropical agroforestry systems by resident and migratory birds. Bob's research interests now lie in the impact of urbanization and West Nile virus on mid-Atlantic bird communities.
