Behavioral ecology exhibits a strong "temperate zone bias": most of what we know derives from studies of organisms living in temperate (especially Northern) latitudes. My contribution to help remedy this bias is studying the adaptive causes and consequences of group-living and sexual size dimorphism in a colonial, Neotropical bird, the Hispaniolan Woodpecker.
