NEW In and December 2015 paper Darryl Wheye and Prof. Paul Ehrlich ask: Are there caterpillars on butterfly wings? The answer has numerous implications including the role of bird predators.
NEW Hummingbird Garden planted at Green Library in association with the Art at Exits exhibit (below). The garden is designed to provide year-round nectar for the three species of hummingbirds seen on campus. It is located at the East portal, near Coupa Cafe.
Art at Exits: Seeing Stanford Species
 The exhibit--and its web coverage--begins with ten works by Audubon featuring birds found on Stanford's main campus. The Audubons are placed near building exits opening toward areas the featured birds frequent. Captions provide a science lens. More Audubons are coming.

David Dobkin, and Darryl Wheye. 1988. Simon & Schuster, New York).
It provides coverage for:

--125 species seen many years on the academic reserve and another 50 that may be occasionally sighted and includes a form for submitting observations that will help annotate species coverage;
-- notes on five avian-rich campus areas and their birds (Arboretum, Central Campus, Dish, Lake Lagunita, and Memorial Marsh);
-- a checklist,
-- a gallery of instructive photographs and artwork; and a form for submitting images to the gallery

Artist Registry is designed for ornithological researchers seeking original art to accompany their publications and seeks

to encourage the creation of great, biologically informative bird art (Science Art), to expand the publication and exhibition of high-end images, and to broaden the audience interested in learning about advances in bird biology and challenges to conservation efforts
