Redwood Region Audubon Society is sponsoring this presentation. The Amazon forest is recognized as one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. From drab ant-following species to brightly-colored tanagers, the diversity of Amazonian bird-life is staggering. Jared Wolfe, PhD, research ecologist at the U.S. Forest Service, will draw on over a decade of experience studying Amazonian birds to discuss their natural history, evolution, and conservation status. Wolfe will also describe how forest clearing and climate change are altering the habitats that many sensitive Amazonian bird species rely on.
