Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

I am a Behavioral Ecologist with interests in animal communication, and spend many years investigated bird song in the field. A major ongoing project looks at the function of bird song in speciation. I am also interested in measuring loudness of bird song in the field, and measuring sound parameters from the spectrogram automatically.

Forskning

I am a Behavioral Ecologist with interests in animal communication. I have for many years investigated functional aspects of bird song in the field, with focus on how singing behaviors are used in aggressive signaling between male birds. I have examined a variety of possible aggressive signals in Brownish-flanked Bush Warbler (Horornis fortipes), including song length, song type and variant switching frequencies, repertoires, and the use of soft song. I was especially interested in determining which behaviors are reliable indicators of attack and which mechanisms that maintain reliability. Now, A major ongoing project looks at the function of bird song in speciation. I am also interested in measuring loudness of bird song in the field, and measuring sound parameters from the spectrogram automatically.
