Field work

Peterson maintains an active field program in global ornithology, developing field collections at sites worldwide, with field work in Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, People’s Republic of China, Philippines, Peru, and Mongolia since arriving to KU in 1993. The broader ornithology group has a quite-intensive field program, which is detailed in the “Ornithology Expeditions” page.

The following map shows sites of Peterson’s field work since arriving in Kansas (most recent field work, not shown on the map, was at two sites in Cameroon):
