Birds in Amazonia. Alarm Responses

Collaboration with Ari Martinez
PostDoc at San Francisco State University

Profile Likelihood Responses for foragersAri was interested in how different foraging patterns affect the length of latency responses in birds. He perform a very detailed field work in Peru, with different species of birds belonging to three main foraging groups.  We analyzed his data using likelihood functions and we obtained relevant differences in alarm responses that depend on foraging behavior.
