About This Project

Most urban ecology research is from the temperate zones. As a Peruvian-American scientist, I'd like to know whether patterns of change in bird biodiversity (like biotic homogenization, the simplification of bird communities) seen in temperate cities are also present in tropical areas. This project, one of my dissertation chapters, will assess how bird communities in the Peruvian Amazon and in the Pacific Coastal Desert change along urban gradients.
