There has been lots of good news for the Burns lab over the past several months. Amelia Demery received funding from the AOU and the American Museum of Natural History to support her project on tanager morphological diversification. She spent the summer measuring tanagers at six different museums. Amelia also learned recently that she has received a Sally Casanova Pre-doctoral scholarship. Brian Myers had another successful field season and received grants from Pasadena Audubon and the AOU to continue to support his hummingbird research. Both Brian Myers and Erik Funk received travel awards to present their research at the recent AOU meetings in DC. Former Burns lab undergrad Zach Martinez was selected as one of only 9 Fulbright awardees from SDSU. In addition, another former Burns lab undergrad Allan Cabrero recently started his PhD at UC Berkeley. Congrats everyone!
