From Desert to City Streets: Environmental Physiology of Sonoran Desert birds

Desert bird

How do birds adjust physiologically to their environment, and particularly to urbanization? 

This has been the focus of Professor Pierre Deviche’s primary research, resulting in approximately 130 scientific publications. Deviche has also served on the Arizona Bird Committee and worked as editor of Arizona Birds Online.

When not at work, he can often be found in the Sonoran Desert ­­— hiking, birding and photographing wildlife. Deviche has a keen interest in dragonflies and their biology, and he developed and maintains azdragonfly.org.

Dr. Deviche's presentation at 3 p.m. on Oct. 24 is part of the Science and Mathematics Colloquium Series in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, held throughout the academic year at ASU’s Polytechnic campus. Faculty and practitioners discuss their current research and field projects in the seminars, which are are free and open to the public.
