Polymorphism in White-throated Sparrows: A model for understanding the mechanisms of behavior
White-throated Sparrows exhibit plumage and behavioral polymorphism, whereby two distinct color morphs differ in regards to territorial aggression and parental care. During this presentation, Dr. Brent Horton of Millersville University, will examine the bases of polymorphism in this species, and how these sparrows have become a unique model organism for understanding how genes and hormones underlie variation in the social behaviors of vertebrates, including ourselves.
