Managed Lands

  • small bird at entrance of nest box

How does agriculture, suburban and urban development affect birds? How do migratory birds adapt to these modified landscapes? Our scientists study how to best manage modified landscapes for the benefit of migratory birds. We are particularly interested in how crops like coffee, cocao, rice and wine can be produced to boost income, quality and biodiversity. In urban areas, we are also deeply interested in how birds change under the influence of city streets, buildings and noise.
