Response of Wetland Bird Populations to Neighboring Land Use Land Cover Change

Hometown: Charlottesville, Virginia

Department: Biology

Advisor: Matthias Leu

 The impact of neighboring landscape change on species abundance in an unchanged target ecosystem is poorly understood. Insight into such potential spillover effects of land use land cover change could inform sustainable development choices. My honors thesis will quantify the potential relationships between national breeding bird population counts and land cover change data to defend my hypothesis that neighboring ecosystems affect each other's functioning and species abundance.
