YAMAGUCHI, Noriyuki

My research is in Behavioral Ecology and Ornithology.  Statistical modeling is also my interest.  My current work is concerned mainly with (1) effects of climate and weather conditions on animal behavior, and (2) satellite telemetry of migratory birds.  As well, I consider natural history study to be important.  I have studied peculiar characteristics of life histry and morphology in a tit subspecies on an oceanic island.  

    Current and past target species were as follows: Yellow-throated Bunting Emberiza elegans, Narcissus Flycatcher Ficedula narcissina, Varied Tit Parus varius, Great TitParus major, Grey-crowned Babbler Pomatostomus temporalis, Blue-faced HoneyeaterEntomyzon cyanotis, Oriental honey-buzzard Pernis ptilorhynchus, Mallard Anas platyrhynchos Northern Pintail Anas acuta, and Eurasian Wigeon Anas penelope.
