We study the genetic diversity of Anatolian birds and evolution of them.
We’re mainly focus on Anatolian bird biodiversity. We catch the birds from all part of Turkey for population genetic and phylogeographic studies. You can join us as volunteer.
Genetical studies are done in Molecular Ornithology Lab. We usually use mitecondrial genes and micro satellites.
Chief of MAKU Lab of Ornithology
Areas of expertise:
Ornithology, phylogeny, phylogeography, moleculer ecology, barcoding, blood parasites
