Birds take advantage of man-made tapping of palm trees
About the author
Jorge Gutiérrez is an ecologist at the University of Extremadura, based in Badajoz, Spain. After a PhD on the ecophysiology of migratory shorebirds (in Badajoz, Spain), he continued his postdoctoral research on heat and salt balance of shorebirds at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research. He then moved to the University of Hull, UK, to work on biological invasions. Then, after a short-term position at University Austral of Chile where he studied the migration physiology of Hudsonian Godwits (Limosa haemastica), he took on a postdoc at the University of Lisbon to study behavioural and physiological thermoregulation in tropically-wintering shorebirds. Recently, he started a tenure-track position at the University of Extremadura to study the impacts of climate change on the distribution of birds.
