About This Project

Predicting the effects of climate change on species at the top trophic levels is crucial because they can have major effects on ecosystems. Also, in species adapted to live in extreme environments, predicting responses to climate change is not straightforward but genetic data can tell us how climate affects their survival and reproductive success. We will assess genetic variation, kinship, and the effect of local climate on three breeding populations of Prairie falcons (Falco mexicanus).
