Research interests

I have broad interests in behavioural ecology, particularly acoustic communication and breeding biology in birds. Our current work is focussed on alarm calls and communication about danger, eavesdropping among species, and vocal mimicry.

For further details see my Biology web page: http://biology.anu.edu.au/research/labs/magrath-group-behavioural-ecology-acoustic-communication-ornithology.

See the 'Wildlife Australia' article at my web site for a non-technical introduction to our work on alarm calls and eavesdropping in avian communities.
