STUDENT SEMINAR

 

 

The morphology of flying animals (like birds) is strongly shaped by their particular mode of locomotion, and one of the most important ecological traits shaping morphology in these are the usually long migratory flights many species, or populations within a species, undertake regularly. Another factor with different implications on the morphology of bird species is the adaptation to the particular characteristics of insular environments. In this seminar we invite you to see and discuss the results of a master's thesis aimed at exploring the differing morphological patterns in continental and insular populations of a common passerine bird, the Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla).

 

 

Pedro is currently enrolled in the Master’s Course in Ecology, Environment and Territory at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto, under the supervision of Prof. David Gonçalves [CONGEN Group].
