The Biogeography and Evolution of Eagles
Dr Michael Campbell presents a webinar on the biogeography of eagle species: that is how the genetics, classification, habitat requirements, intra-species and inter-species predatory competition, and migratory habitats of eagles have varied over time and space, and a comparison of eagle ecologies across continents. Basically, when we see an eagle, what is the importance of its location and liing space? These include comparisons of sister-species (such as the Bald eagle in North America and the White-tailed eagle in Eurasia; the Golden eagle in North America and Eurasia, and the Verreaux’s eagle in Africa; and the Harpy eagle, Crowned eagle and Philippine eagle in Central and South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia respective). The webinar will illustrate the crucial role of biogeography, ecology and genetics (including evolution) in the understanding of eagle existence and survival.
