In recent weeks, UNL’s Paul Johnsgard has published three new books. The ornithologist and emeritus professor of biological sciences has now published 61 books. Johnsgard's three recent publications are, "Yellowstone Wildlife: Ecology and Natural History of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem," "Bird and Birding in the Bighorn Mountains Region of Wyoming," and "The Birds of Nebraska."
UNL ecologist John DeLong has helped confirm that birds' migratory speeds and pathways are largely affected by body size rather than physical limitations. The study, which featured 102 bird species in the lower 48 states, was published in the journal Ecology.
