Rebecca Bird

Rebecca Bird is a Professor of Anthropology and graduate faculty in the 
 Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Ecology and the program in Human Dimensions of Natural Resources and the Environment.  Trained in human behavioral ecology, she also draws widely on landscape ecology, community and population ecology, evolutionary ecology, and social theory to investigate a wide range of topics relating to dynamic interactions between human behavior and the environment, including the ecology of human fire use and the link to ecosystem function, resource management and niche construction, the social and ecological contexts and consequences of age and gender differences in subsistence labor, women's hunting, cooperation and food sharing, conspicuous consumption and costly signaling, and the ecological contexts of egalitarianism and political hierarchy.  This work relies on a variety of quantitative methods, including ecological survey, social network analysis, GIS, naturalistic behavioral observation, and participant observation. In addition to her contributions to the VIFF project, she is also involved in other research projects in Australia and Northern California on climate, indigenous patch mosaic burning, and its emergent outcomes for sustainable hunting and the conservation of endangered species.
