Evolution of Bird Families

Sibirian Jay

We explore the evolution of family living and cooperative breeding in birds and use comparative studies to understand its evolution. We use Siberian Jays as a model system to test the proximate mechanisms of social decisions in a family living species.

Research themes

  • Influence of life-history and ecology on the evolution of families and cooperative breeding in birds
  • Comparative work to understand the evolutionary trajectories towards cooperation
  • Evolution of vocal antipredator communication in birds
  • Link between antipredator behaviour and the evolution of sociality
