Mundinger Lecture: A small bird with an outsized impact

Ben Sheldon, University of Oxford

A common and well-loved little bird flits into the spotlight during this year's Paul C. Mundinger Distinguished Lectureship at Cornell University. The speaker will be Ben Sheldon, Professor of Field Ornithology at the University of Oxford. Professor Sheldon's presentation is about a long-term study of the Great Tit in the United Kingdom, a bird similar to the ubiquitous Black-capped Chickadee across North America. It's a study that spans multiple generations of both the target species and the researchers and which has yielded key insights into bird ecology and evolution. 

The Mundinger lecture is being held on October 6, at 5:30 p.m. in room B25, Warren Hall, on the Cornell University campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
