Birds in High Places – Dawson City

Dr. Kathy Martin from University of British Columbia/Environment and Climate Change Canada will be giving several talks next week on her work on ecology and conservation of birds and mountain systems.

Mountains comprise about 50% of the BC and Yukon landbase, and one-third of birds breeding in North America use mountain habitats for at least one critical period of their annual life cycle. Birds have developed exceptional adaptions to live in these environmentally rigorous habitats where often abundant food and moderate predation risk can offset the increased energetic costs of living at high elevation. Join Kathy Martin for an exploration of northern alpine avian adaptations, and the implications of climate change for avian diversity.
