Avian Research at the UW Burke Museum
Dr. John Klicka
Don and Betts Baepler Endowed Professorship and Curator of Birds
Dr. Klicka will explain the type of research done at the Burke Museum on birds. This will include the questions asked, the methods used, the results obtained and why these results matter from an evolutionary and biodiversity perspective. Dr Klicka obtained his Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior with a concentration in evolutionary biology from the University of Minnesota in 1999. He comes to the UW from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where he was Curator of Birds and Adjunct Professor. His research has ranged from using genetics to determine bird species to how neotropical birds evolved and dispersed. Please join us for a very enlightening and educational evening.
