    About This Project

    Blood parasites can have devastating effects on bird populations, and climate change is expected to increase exposure of naïve populations to infection by altering the distribution, composition, and social ecology of bird communities. Yet we lack a complete understanding of how social behavior influences infection risk. I will assess malarial infection in a socially-diverse avian community to test whether a host's disease risk relates to its social behavior in conspecific and community contexts.
