Speaker: Luke DeGroote, Avian Research Coordinator, Powdermill Nature Preserve, Carnegie Museum of Natural History
Studies of natural history are increasingly rare, yet they underpin the questions that are asked, the validity of tests performed, and the efforts to conserve biodiversity in a rapidly changing world.
