Sievert Rohwer


I study evolutionary ecology and behavior, mostly of birds, with interests in avian coloration, adoption of unrelated offspring by replacement mates, avian hybrid zones, brood parasitism, phylogeography, and life history implications of molt. Under my curatorship Ornithology collections at the Burke Museum became internationally distinguished as the largest collection of extended wings in the world and the second largest collection of avian tissues in the world.
