Using physiology and automated telemetry to understand stopover and movement of migratory birds and bats in human-dominated landscapes
Migrating birds and bats need stopover sites to refuel between their feats of endurance flight. Assessing the characteristics that make habitats good for refueling is challenging, and in this talk I will discuss how scientists are using physiological and radio tracking methods to measure rates of refueling and stopover behaviour in birds and bats a variety of landscape contexts.

Dr. Chris Guglielmo is a Professor of Biology, and a Co-Director of the Advanced Facility for Avian Research at Western University. He has 30 years of research experience studying migratory birds and bats and specializes on flight and refueling physiology and ecology.
