Subject: [nysbirds-l] BBC Evening Presentation: Rivers, Climate Change, and Birds
*BBC Evening Presentation*

*Rivers, Climate Change, and Birds: Patterns of Avain Diversity Across
Western and Central African Tropical Forests.*

Presenter: Jerry Huntley, Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American
Museum of History.

*Tuesday April 17 @ 7PM*

*BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY, CENTRAL BRANCH AT GRAND ARMY PLAZA*
Using genetic information gathered from natural history collections and
field expeditions to West Africa, Jerry Huntley’s team examined 70 species
of African forest bird. From this data, they hope to have a better
understanding of how potential barriers to movement within the forest (such
as rivers and savannahs) and historical climate change have shaped the
distribution of birds that we see today, especially from a genetics
standpoint.
