Join us for a new episode of The Graduates as we speak with Luke Bloch in the Department of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley. Luke is an ornithologist and conservation biologist who studies the evolution and diversification of birds on islands. In the interview, Luke talks about his work in Indonesia, as well as at other field sites around the globe, and describes what it's like trekking up and down tropical mountains to find birds and other animals. On this episode of The Graduates, Luke also tells the story of Darwin's finches, talks about his 'life list', and details his lifelong passion for birds.
The Graduates, highlighting graduate student research at Berkeley and around the world, is broadcast every other Tuesday at 9AM on KALX 90.7FM and on the web at http://kalx.berkeley.edu. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online. The Graduates is hosted by Tesla Monson, PhD Candidate in the Department of Integrative Biology.
