This website hosts a series of educational videos covering a wide range of topics on ornithological research and conservation. These lectures were recorded as part of a course entitled Basic Ornithology: Research and Conservation conducted in December 2019 at IISER Tirupati, India.
The aim of this repository of lectures is to educate and encourage students to pursue a career in ornithological research and conservation. It covers major topics in biology (eg anatomy, evolution, behaviour, populations), field and laboratory techniques, as well as research concepts and study design.
