PBMS starts new collaboration with the University of Manchester

The Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme has agreed to collaborate with the University of Manchester in a study to investigate morphological adaptions in wing muscles for different flight behaviours in a range of species. This work will inform us how avian morphology is adapted to differing styles of flight and the trade-off between muscle form and function.

Fernanda Bribiesca, a PhD student supervised by Dr Bill Sellers of the Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester, recently visited the laboratories at CEH Lancaster to see how we carry out our post mortem examinations and which samples we can provide for her studies.

Fernanda Bribiesca (UoM) visited with Elaine Potter (PBMS) at CEH’s Laboratories at the Lancaster Environment Centre to discuss collaboration between the two studies.
