About the event

Alpine ecosystems systems are among those predicted to be the most affected by a rapidly changing climate. Seasonally located in high mountain ranges, Black Rosy-Finch breed exclusively in alpine environments where retreating snowfields and tundra facilitate forage, and cracks in cliffs provide nest sites. Advancing treeline, upslope movements of subalpine plans and changes in snowpack demonstrate the potential to impact alpine breeding obligate communities while advancing woody vegetative obligates. Please welcome back our friend and colleague Carl Brown as he brings us up to date on his work on one of the least studied songbirds in North America, and the highest breeding avian in Wyoming.  Carl's studies are part of his graduate work at the University of Wyoming's  Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in the Department of Zoology and Physiology.

Carl Brown is a wildlife biologist with Biodiversity Research Institute currently working on Common Loons, Harlequin Duck, and alpine songbirds in Wyoming. He completed his master’s program in 2021 at the University of Wyoming. Over the last dozen years, Carl has worked on songbirds, rare waterbirds, large mammals and disease topics throughout Montana and Wyoming.
