Sevan is currently a PhD student at UCSB
Project Title: The importance of the Los Angeles urban forest as habitat for migratory and resident birds
Sevan studied avian communities in LA across a socioeconomic gradient. His thesis work focused on (1) understanding street tree-species preferences by birds in the urban forest, and (2) distributions of birds throughout the city based on environmental factors.
Below are two posters highlighting important contributions from Sevan’s work in the lab.
