I received a grant from the American Museum of Natural History's Chapman Memorial Fund to support my field work this year. This valuable funding will support the development of my new field site in Western Province, Papua New Guinea and maintaining our long term monitoring in Garuahi!
In September I presented a poster on the adaptive consequences of female plumage in female White-shouldered Fairywrens at the 2014 American Ornithologists' Union Conference in Estes Park, Colorado. You can see the full poster by clicking on the image to the left.
I received a student research grant from the American Ornithologist's Union for my work on White-shouldered Fairywrens in Papua New Guinea in May. These funds will go towards maintaining my field site and for valuable laboratory supplies back at Tulane!
