Project Title: The importance of the Los Angeles urban forest as habitat for migratory and resident birds
I am a graduate student quantifying the importance of the LA urban forest to resident and migratory birds. My field work is situated all throughout LA and surrounding cities where I count and quantify foraging behavior by birds. I use a variety of analytical techniques to model habitat associations and tree-species preferences by birds. My work is intended to aid city planners in managing the urban forest with trees that are beneficial to both people and wildlife.
