Appointed faculty directory of the UC Davis Natural Reserve System in 2011, Professor John Wingfield (Neurology, Physiology and Behavior) has been working on natural reserves for more than 20 years. Much of his research centers on the physiological responses of birds to environmental stressors, such as changing weather, food availability, and predator levels. He relies on natural reserves as protected spaces where he can return year after year for his studies. The long-term data series he and others are collecting at these sites are helping us understand the effects of changing global climate.
