Media coverage of paper on birds and climate change

I recently published the first paper from my PhD research at Washington University, together with Joan Garcia-Porta and Carlos Botero. It was great to finally see the paper in Ecology Letters (“Phenotypic response to climate change are dampened in big-brained birds”), but I also enjoyed talking to a handful of interested reporters in the aftermath.

Here are some links to places where our paper received some press coverage:


Scientific American

Utah Public Radio

Saint Louis Public Radio

Washington University

Ars Technica

Birdwatching Daily

The Wildlife Society



This was my first time talking to reporters about science, and I enjoyed the process. Every conversation or email exchange, with veteran or undergraduate student reporters, had me thinking about our research in a different way.
