Audubon Zoom Presentation on Foraging and Breeding Behavior of Lekking Sage-Grouse
Date(s) - 02/16/2022
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An Audubon Zoom presentation on Connecting Foraging and Breeding Behavior in Lekking Sage-Grouse will be presented on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 7 pm. Presenter will be Eric Tymstra, a PhD candidate in ecology at UC Davis. Tymstra said males in lekking species face trade-offs, as display territories with greater reproductive opportunities will also be the costliest to defend against rivals, requiring choices linked to dietary energy intake and physiology. Tymstra has studied Greater Sage-grouse in Wyoming, Idaho and California in his research. He has focused on the intersection of sexual selection, foraging behavior and habitat use.
