Caroline Stahala

Ph.D. candidate, office: KIN 4079

B.S. Biology – Univ. of North Carolina
M.S. Zoology - North Carolina State University

Research interests - Population and behavioral ecology of avian species for their future conservation. Although Caroline has worked with a variety of species in the past, including grassland, forest, and coastal birds, her current research focuses on the Bahama Parrot (Amazona leucocephala bahamensis). Caroline’s previous work on this species focused on the population biology of the parrot, particularly survival and breeding biology. During her Ph.D. work, she will expand this research to investigate the evolutionary basis of variation in breeding behavior in parrots and other frugivorous birds of the Bahamas.
