Contributor, Ideas

Liam Taylor is a Ph.D. student in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at Yale University, New Haven, CT. His research focuses on the evolution of adolescent birds: why do some birds take a decade to begin breeding, even though they grow to adult size in their first year of life? The answer involves behavior, society, and sex! Liam's fieldwork includes studies of storm-petrels and gulls on foggy Kent Island in New Brunswick, Canada, work with plovers in the tundra of Churchill, Manitoba, and research with tropical manakins in the cloudforests of Ecuador.
