Description MSc students.

The fieldwork takes place between December and April in Florestal/Minas Gerais, in southeastern Brazil.

In this project, you will investigate if the Lined Seedeater has referential alarm calls. In the fieldwork, you will use several predator models, present them to breeding pairs in the wild, and record their alarm call. Then you will use acoustic software and statistical software to analyse the alarm calls and answer the question regarding the referential alarm calls in this species.
