Jordan Karubian

Jordan Karubian, whose research in behavioral ecology, evolution, and conservation focuses on tropical birds, lived in Ecuador’s Chocó rain forest for four years, studying such imperiled species as umbrellabirds, banded ground-cuckoos, brown wood-rails, and macaws. He has also worked in Australia, with grasswrens and fairy-wrens. He conducted most of his work on the long-wattled umbrellabird while at the University of California, Los Angeles; recently he became an assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Tulane University in New Orleans. Karubian works closely with his wife, Renata Durães, who is also a tropical biologist.
