At Five Valleys Audubon November Monthly Meeting, Bob Gentry will discuss the “Impacts of forest fragmentation and habitat loss on the ovenbird and other neotropical migrants and resident birds.” Mr. Gentry will discuss the importance of maintaining avian biodiversity and genetic resilience through the preservation of important and sensitive habitat in the US and abroad. Birds are important indicator species. The study of impacts of human activity on birds provides essential data. Mr. Gentry has a BA in biology/ecology from Hendrix College, an MA in ecology from the University of Missouri, and a Masters in Environmental Law and JD from Vermont Law School. In graduate school his research focused on the impacts of habitat destruction and fragmentation on neotropical migrants, specifically the Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus).
