Hello, I am a University of British Columbia Zoology Prof doing research in Bioacoustics, mostly Lions and many species of birds, plus many animals in British Columbia Canada. I travel to Africa twice a year every year for the past 18 years. Are there any other folks on this site interested in animal communication and doing research?
Plus you might be interested in our new book, "The Biology of African Savannahs" Shorrocks and Bates published by Oxford U Press. It is the first book dealing with all aspects of African savannah biology that uses the integrative multi-disciplinary approach to tell the story, not only ecology, but behaviour, molecular biology, reproductive biology..............using the latest scientific methods such as using satellites to study seasonal reproduction, mass spec to study dietary histories in elephant hairs, microsatellite DNA to track the source of poached ivory.......plus a detailed chapter on conservation. Some of you might like this read!!! Cheers, Bill Bates BC Canada.
