Urban Greening for Urban Birds
With Paige Warren, Associate Professor, Department of Environmental Conservation, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
What are the needs of an urban bird? Paige Warren has recently analyzed 150 years of documented changes in the bird communities of Cambridge and examined a variety of Boston’s green spaces to determine ways to improve and increase habitat for year-round as well as migratory birds and other city-dwelling animals. She will speak about her research to understand processes generating and maintaining biological diversity in a world that is becoming increasingly dominated by humans.
