I wrote “Visual, Auditory, and Olfactory Sexual Selection Methods in Birds Inform Mate Choice by Serving as Indicators for Mate Quality” in Fall of 2017 while taking a class entitled Ecology and Evolution. My professor, Dr. Cynthia Kicklighter, spoke about the brilliant displays of Bird’s of Paradise, which prompted me to further explore sexual selection in birds. Throughout this process I learned about sexual selection methods that I would not have come up with in a million years. What I found was bizarre and attests to the versatility of life on earth. My research greatly improved my understanding of bird mate choice and never failed to be interesting, which is why I am so excited to share it with non-scientists and scientists alike! Please enjoy and contact me with any comments or questions.
