Bob Montgomerie: Ten Thousand Birds

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, March 13, 2014 - 10:30am

Ornithology since the time of Charles Darwin has made some exciting discoveries that have been important to all the natural sciences. Some of these include finding out that that birds are dinosaurs, discovering that feathers existed before they were used for flight, learning how to use certain DNA techniques to better understand evolution, and developing advanced digital technology to track birds in flight. There have also been some legendary characters in the science of ornithology and some very heated arguments. Tune in tonight when we talk with BOB MONTGOMERIE, Professor of Biology at Queen’s University in Ontario. Together with Tim Birkhead and Jo Wimpenny, they have written one of the great and entertaining histories of science: TEN THOUSAND BIRDS: ORNITHOLOGY SINCE DARWIN.
