A re-examination of ZENK expression following hetero- and conspecific playback in the zebra finch auditory forebrainDownload
Zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) are one of the most sexually dimorphic songbirds used as model species, not only in appearance but also in vocal production; while males produce both calls and songs, the females only produce calls. This dimorphism in the zebra finch provides a means to...
Sex differences have been identified in a number of black-capped chickadee vocalizations and in the chick-a-dee calls of other chickadee species [i.e., Carolina chickadees (Poecile carolinensis)]. In the current study, 12 acoustic features in black-capped chickadee chick-a-dee calls were...
An investigation of sex differences in acoustic features of the chick-a-dee call of black-capped chickadees (Poecile atricapillus)Download
The chick-a-dee call of the black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is composed of four main note types (A, B, C, and D) that occur in a fixed order. Sex differences have been identified in a number of black-capped chickadee vocalizations (including tseet calls and fee-bee songs) and in the...
Black-capped chickadees (Poecile atricapillus) are a species of North American songbirds commonly studied for their unique vocalizations. The two most studied vocalizations are their fee-bee song, used for mating and territory defense, and their name-sake chick-a-dee call, which has multiple...
Understory protection is a harvesting approach that seeks to protect understory conifers during hardwood harvesting in mixedwood forests. While understory protection harvesting has been implemented for over a decade in Alberta, there has been no study of its ecological value to birds. We surveyed...
Chickadees produce many vocalizations, including the chick-a-dee call that they use as a mobbing call in the presence of predators. Previous research has shown that chickadees produce more D notes in their mobbing calls in response to high-threat predators compared to low-threat predators, and...

Canada’s boreal forest is the breeding ground for some 288 species of resident and migratory birds. Approximately 65% of the species that are currently of highest conservation priority in the boreal region are associated with wetlands and riparian areas. Although estimates vary with scale and...
The Canadian boreal forest is vital breeding habitat for North American songbirds. Extensive anthropogenic disturbances within this biome are therefore of conservation concern. Using unharvested stands as controls, I examined the effects of variable retention management (VRM) relative to...
