Furman biology professors Greg Lewis and John Quinn along with dozens more across the nation have published new research in Biological Conservation. The paper examines the degree of bird mortality due to collisions with sheet glass windows found in urban developments. Their findings were based in part on data gathered by more than 100 Furman students over the course of two academic years. The research offers a better understanding of why up to one billion birds die annually throughout North America after hitting windows in buildings, and also suggests ways to curtail bird vs. window mortality rates.
