Justin Mann is a behavioral ecologist interested in how animals use environmental and social information when making fitness-related decisions. His past research has focused on how migratory birds assess the quality of breeding habitats by integrating information about vegetation structure with social cues from conspecific songs.
More recently, he has served as database manager and statistical consultant for Dr. Anne Clark's Crow Research Group. The Crow Research Group is using a long-term dataset to investigate how life history traits and social behaviors have affected fitness in a population of American Crows.
