Dr. Neil Buckley
Associate Professor & Chair of Biological Sciences
I have wide-ranging interests in animal behavior, ornithology and evolution and I teach a diverse array of classes in these areas including BIO208 Evolution, BIO209 Vertebrate Zoology and BIO323 Invertebrate Zoology.
My primary research focus is on foraging behavior and, in particular, the decision-making processes of foraging animals. I have carried out research on the foraging behavior of vultures and cormorants and most recently the breeding biology of grassland birds. I am also interested in the ectoparasites of small mammals.
