Title Population dynamics of two neotropical migrants, American Redstart and

Black-throated Blue Warbler, on North American breeding grounds and Jamaican

wintering grounds

Project Description This project involves the analysis of long-term capture-recapture data sets from 2 study sites,

Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, N.H. (breeding ground), and a Jamaican wintering site.

These data are unique in being long-term and in being from both the wintering and breeding

grounds for neotropical migrant species. The collectors of these data are interested in

investigating factors associated with seasonal survival rates of these species. A Ph.K candidate,

stationed at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, will investigate the influence of reporduction and

territory quality on survival rates of these birds using methods developed at Patuxent Wildlife

Research Center.
