“Effects of an introduced parasite on Galapagos birds” by Sabrina McNew.

Sabrina is a graduate student in the Clayton/Bush Lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah. She studies interactions between species, in particular those antagonistic interactions between animals and their parasites. Sabrina is studying an introduced fly in the Galápagos Islands, Philornis downsi. In addition to field work in the Galapagos, Sabrina has also studied the effects of blood parasites on the homing ability of feral pigeons in captivity.
