Effects of Noise Pollution on Zebra Finch Behavior

Hometown: Westfield, New Jersey

Department: Biology

Advisor: John Swaddle

My Honors Thesis will investigate how noise pollution affects zebra finch behavior, specifically aggression, dominance, and the energy trade-off between foraging and vigilance. My project will help us better understand the extent to which noise pollution impacts songbirds.
