Don Powers (Biology) was part of a team of scientists who, after more than two years of work, in January will publish Hummingbird (Family Trochilidae) Research: Welcome Conscious Study Techniques for Live Hummingbirds and Processing of Hummingbird Specimens through Texas Tech University.

To facilitate this work, the team decided to compile specialized methodologies along with all associated published literature to assist new scientists starting work on hummingbirds, as well as more established scientists whose work is moving in new directions. “There is no doubt that this publication will be valued and well used for many years to come,” Don says. “It will not only save hummingbird scientists time building their projects but offer methods that protect the welfare of hummingbirds used in research and humane methods for use when birds must be sacrificed.”
