Standing in nature, McCune brightly smiles at the camera. She wears dangling bird earrings and a light blue, vertical striped button down. The green, vegetated background is blurred while McCune is in focus as the subject.The 2023 Spring Seminar Series will feature Kelsey McCune, Affiliate Assistant Professor, who will give a talk titled ‘Avian behavioral ecology in a changing world and implications for conservation’ on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 3:30 p.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment (CFWE) Building. Refreshments will be available after the seminar, and CFEs are available upon request. See the full spring seminar schedule here.

In this talk Dr. McCune will describe her research evaluating variation in avian behavior and cognition as it relates to rapid environmental change. In addition, she will briefly highlight the research she will focus on with the CFWE.

Dr. Kelsey McCune is an ecologist who studies individual differences in behavior and cognition in wildlife species. She has a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and a PhD in Animal Behavior from the University of Washington. She has been supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, an NSF-sponsored internship at the Smithsonian National Zoo, and a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. Dr. McCune’s research has helped bridge the fields of animal behavior and wildlife management by examining links between aspects of behavior and niche specialization, resource acquisition in novel environments, and biological invasions. In her new role as affiliate faculty with the CFWE, she looks forward to continuing this important work through faculty collaborations and student mentoring. Faculty, students, and the public are invited to attend this program. Parking is available in the South Quad Parking Deck on the third and fourth floors. Advanced registration is not required.  To receive announcements about future seminars, send a request to join our email list to cfwecom@auburn.edu.
