Jacinta Humphrey Birds in the ‘burbs: How do birds respond to urban development?

As our population continues to grow, so too do our cities and suburbs. The process of urban development alters natural habitats by removing native vegetation and replacing it with houses, shops, and roads. So how does this landscape change impact the birds that share our cities? Why do some birds cope better than others? And what can we do to better support the less common species? In this talk, Jacinta Humphrey will present on her research investigating the influence of urban development on bird communities throughout Greater Melbourne.
