Evolutionary History of Pacific and Welcome Swallows
I am lucky enough to be a collaborator on this research project led by Dr. Elizabeth Scordato at Cal-Poly Pomona.
We are studying patterns of population structure, divergence, and adaptation to human environments in Pacific and Welcome Swallows across southeast Asia. In 2018, Liz and I sampled swallows in Malaysia, Borneo, Japan, and Fiji. Field work was disrupted by the pandemic, but we did manage to make it to Tahiti in the summer of 2021.
