Research at Durham
My research at Durham focuses primarily on how species interactions influence range dynamics and coexistence in birds. These interactions include interspecific territoriality, hybridisation and exploitative competition. I try to determine what factors influence the liklelihood of species pairs defending interspecific terriotories and hybridising. Additionally, I look at how these species interactions have influenced historical range changes and how they may influence them in the future as species ranges shift as result of climate change.
