    About This Project

    In order to better understand the production of suboscine song, in the absence of vocal learning, a biometric analysis of select species of suboscines preserved at the American Museum of Natural History will be studied. 3D printed models will be created and phonation will be simulated with specialized equipment. Eventually, this data will be combined with computational methods to model a series of physical and physiological properties of simulated phonation.
