Modesto Junior College

Science presentation offered on cross-species bird communications

The Modesto Area Partners in Science (MAPS) is offering the presentation “Fear and food in the Amazon: understanding how and why birds eavesdrop on each other in the rainforest” by Ari Martinez, Ph.D., National Geographic explorer.  The science event is Friday, January 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Sierra Hall 132 on Modesto Junior College’s West Campus and both the program and parking are free.

Martinez, an animal ecologist who explores the realms of behavior and community ecology, discusses how neo-tropical birds communicate across species and how they use the information they gain about food and predators.

Communication signals between species, either intentional or unintentional, can explain why different species associate with one another.  Martinez looks at how different species might benefit from using signals from other species, and what the consequences might be in terms of habitat for relying on communication from a different species.

The MAPS event is intended for people over 12 years of age. MAPS programs are made possible by contributions from the Associated Students of Modesto Junior College, MJC Foundation and MJC STEM program and Modesto Teachers Association.
