A Ph.D. assistantship is available to study the spatial ecology of the Magellanic woodpecker (Campephilus magellanicus), a flagship species and a close relative of the Ivory-billed and Imperial woodpeckers. The research will be conducted on Navarino Island in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve, in southern Chile, in the world’s southernmost forests. We already started the monitoring of the birds and of habitat quality assessment both on the ground and through remote sensing. Partial logistical support will be provided at the program’s Field Station in Puerto Williams, of the Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation program.
