    About This Project

    This study aims to better understand how birds can micro-evolve in a newly colonized environment. I hypothesize that over the last 200 years, pigeons in eastern North America have evolved diversity of morphometric and color based characteristics. To test this hypothesis I will collect data on morphometric and color-based traits in wild pigeons at different geographical sites in eastern North America.
