Lecture: Audubon Presents "Undercover: The secretive lives of rails” with Laurie Hall.

  • Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History

Laurie Hall is starting the sixth year of her Ph.D. in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at the University of California, Berkeley.  She has spent the past five years up to her knees in mud, peering into the cattails, trying to understand one of the most secretive species of birds in the world-the Black Rail.  Her dissertation is focused on dispersal of rails among wetlands in northern California, and she uses a number of methods to measure wetland connectivity, including radio-telemetry, genetics, and stable isotope chemistry.  In her presentation, Laurie will describe population dynamics, connectivity, and habitat use of rails and discuss how her research will help inform conservation and management decisions for wetlands and their wildlife in the face of continued habitat loss and fragmentation caused by development and climate change.  Her work was recently highlighted in a Bay Nature article. http://baynature.org/articles/elusive-black-rail-may-adapt-better-than-youd-think/.  To learn more about Laurie and her research please visit https://www.cnr.berkeley.edu/beislab/rail/html/index.html.    

Doors open at 7:00PM. Talk to Begin around 7:30, at the PG Museum of Natural History.
