Animal behaviour/ecology

Dr. Ted Miller

My research is mainly on acoustic evolution in birds, with special reference to speciation, phylogeny, and sexual selection. Current projects (2020-2021) are on Charadriiformes:

SNIPE                                                                                                                                                         Vocal and non-vocal divergence patterns in the World's snipe (Coenocorypha and Gallinago)[With Nacho Areta (IBIGEO-CONICET, Salta, Argentina) and Colin Miskelly (Museum of New Zealand/Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington)]

Geographic variation in vocal and non-vocal displays of the Wilson's Snipe (Gallinago delicata) [With David Gonçalves (University of Porto, Portugal), Tiago Rodrigues (Secretaria Regional da Agricultura e Florestas, Azores, Portugal), Yolanda Wiersma (Memorial University), and Dave Wilson (Memorial University)]

A comparative study of vocal and non-vocal displays in the Wilson's Snipe (Gallinago delicata) and Common Snipe (G. gallinago)                                                                                                        [With David Gonçalves (University of Porto, Portugal) and Tiago Rodrigues (Secretaria Regional da Agricultura e Florestas, Azores, Portugal)]

SANDPIPERS                                                                                                                                  Vocal divergence within a clade of closely related sandpipers (Great Knot; Red Knot; Surfbird) [With Vladimir Arkhipov (Russian Academy of Sciences, Pushchino) and Pavel Tomkovich (M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia)]
