Chace to discuss “Avifaunal Change in Colorado”
Dr. Jameson Chace, associate professor of biology and biomedical sciences, will discuss his sabbatical research during a faculty presentation this week. “Long View from the Front Range: A Century of Avifaunal Change in Colorado” will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27 in the McKillop Library.
Drawing from field notebooks, museum collections, published and unpublished field studies, and volumes of notes and records from amateur bird watchers, Chace’s research documented a century of bird population and community change in Boulder County, Colorado from 1894 to 2010.
Chace will explore how the needs of a growing human population, change in landscape and conservation efforts have impacted the avifaunal community during this time period.
Light refreshments will be served following the presentation.
