About Dr. Bowers

Dr. Bowers' research focuses on the evolutionary, physiological, and behavioral ecology of wild birds. The study of birds presents an excellent opportunity to investigate questions related to vertebrate ecology, physiology, social behavior, and evolution. Dr. Bowers and his colleagues use a variety of techniques to investigate questions related to animal ecology and evolution, including responses to anthropogenic activity and climate change. Dr. Bowers and his research group will soon be establishing study populations of birds at the Meeman Biological Station north of Memphis to investigate these issues.
