The Bird Genoscape Project: Harnessing the Power of Genomics for Migratory Bird Conservation - Livestream

Poster

Most populations of migratory birds are now threatened. It is estimated that the populations of 1 out of every 2 songbirds are declining in the Western Hemisphere with impacts predicted to worsen with climate change. However, because migratory birds have breeding, migratory, and wintering areas and may move vast distances between them, understanding where the steepest population declines are occurring has been difficult or impossible. Join us for a presentation by Dr. Kristen Ruegg to learn about her work to address this critical issue as part of The Bird Genoscape Project - an effort to bring together scientists from across the Western Hemisphere to map the migratory routes of migratory songbirds using genomics.

This event was originally scheduled for August 25.
