Study

Hi James,
I just checked out your citizen science blog, I think it's fantastic! I started a study 2 years ago on the effects of urbanisation on birds and finished this May. I'm looking at having it published as an actual paper if I can get the support of a uni. I'm only 15, so not a qualified scientist but I never felt hindered by that in any way. In terms of new discoveries I certainly made some, I even produced 'stimuli theory' as a result, which aims to account for differences in reaction to stimuli in urban birds in comparison to rural birds. Something that hadn't been investigated before! I really support your view in relation to citizen science. If your at all interested I'd be more than happy to send you an overview on the study.
