William K. Hayes - Islands in crisis: Biodiversity and conservation studies of reptiles and birds in the Bahamas
As a part of the Caribbean biodiversity hotspot, the Bahamas archipelago hosts substantial species richness. But like most archipelagos, human activities are rapidly and profoundly decimating many species and their habitats. Dr. Hayes will describe long-term studies of endangered birds and reptiles, illustrating the importance of taxonomic assessment, population estimation, habitat restoration, and local environmental education.
