eabl photoAnother set of studies in my lab was inspired by a conversation with a student on a field trip, about whether golf courses were a boon or bane for bird populations. That conversation sparked several studies on Virginia's golf courses, resulting in numerous Master's theses, a symposium of 12 talks at the national ornithological society meetings, and a subsequent special section of 10 articles in the journal Wildlife Society Bulletin. Most importantly, students wrote numerous pieces for golf industry publications to disseminate our findings and educate managers and owners of courses on best practices for coexistence between birds and golf.
