Originally censused in 1982 by several pioneers of neotropical ornithology, the 2018 census of the Cocha Cashu plot in the Peruvian rainforest
has been a long time coming!
Repeating methods established by the likes of
John Terborgh, John Fitzpatrick, and the late
Ted Parker, this is a special project that demands generational teamwork. Read about the results of this incredible undertaking in this months issue of Ecology Letters!
Our summary graphic describing our research on primate and passerine alarm eavesdropping was chosen as the cover image for this months special issue of Oikos! This issue is titled The Ecology of Information enters the Anthropocene, and hosts a collection of papers stressing the ecological significance of information use in biological organisms. Thanks Oikos!
And thank you to NeotropicalScience affiliate
and wildlife illustrator Micah Riegner
who painted 16 birds and a primate
just for this graphic!
Check out this awesome feature from the American Society of Naturalists including our photos of the Cocha Cashu Field site and those awesome antshrikes! Read all about the study of eavesdropping and fear in this awesome new manuscript!
