Kali E. Block

Undergraduate Researcher, Rubega Lab, Dept. of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UConn

I am an Ecology and Evolutionary Biology major, conducting a Sigma Xi-funded independent study project on whether North American populations of Monk Parakeets, a non-native species that has established breeding populations with apparent ease outside its home range, are undergoing morphological evolution in accordance with ecogeographical “rules”, such as Bergmann’s Rule. I am also a certified wildlife rehabilitator through the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council.
