Dr. Burnham, President of the High Arctic Institute, will present the results of 25 years of avian research in north Greenland. He will discuss long-term studies of the breeding biology and ecology of peregrine and gyrfalcon populations, and more recent research on a variety of seabird and waterfowl species. The lecture will culminate with an overview of observed changes in weather and climate and what affect they are having on bird populations in his study area.
