Forest Birds in a Warming World 2/7

Friday, February 7, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Wildlife ecologist Sarah Frey, who was featured in Rising, Dispatches from the New American Shore, will talk about climbing rugged slopes from creek bed to mountaintop in order to study 50 different species of birds in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in the Oregon Cascades. Frey, whose research around the world focuses on the conservation of biodiversity in the face of land use and climate change in both temperate and tropical forest systems, will share her insights into how a changing climate affects biodiversity in forested montane landscapes.

Sarah Frey received her M.S. in Natural Resources from the University of Vermont and her Ph. D. in Forest Science from Oregon State University. She is a quantitative wildlife ecologist with a focus on avian ecology and landscape-scale patterns. Her research focuses on the conservation of biodiversity in the face of land use and climate change in both temperate and tropical forest systems. She studies how changes to montane forest landscapes influence species distributions, abundance trends, and community composition.

She has studied hawk and owl migration in Nevada and Michigan, researched avian pox in Hawaii, tracked tropical birds in Ecuador and Australia. She investigates the effects of forest fragmentation on hummingbirds and frugivores in Costa Rica. Some of her recent research has examined the potential for vegetation structure to provide microrefugia for biodiversity in the face of regional warming in the Pacific Northwest.
