All of our research questions are linked by our desire to understand why birds are the way they are. We are interested in the evolution of behaviour, physiology, and life-history variation across species. We conduct work on birds in the field and in captivity and use a variety of techniques in our research, including microscopy, optical spectrometry, acoustic analysis, molecular work, hormonal assays, individual tracking and comparative methods.

Our work is best summarised via the pages showcasing work on individual species, using the menu bar above.
