题目：Bioacoustics in the Southern Hemisphere: Behaviour and Conservation Values
Dr Michelle Roper is a Research Officer and behavioural ecologist in the Zoology & Ecology Group at Massey University Auckland. She obtained her PhD at Massey University in 2019 where she studied the differences between males and females in their song development, song repertoires, and syrinx (vocal organ) structure in the korimako (New Zealand bellbird). In 2020, she began her postdoctoral research at Massey University on the relationship between vocal complexity and syrinx structure in Australasian honeyeaters. She has worked on a number of bioacoustics projects, including topics on cultural diversity. Her research continues to focus on the ontogeny, structure and production of female birdsong within the context of the life history of songbirds to establish the groundwork needed to understand the function and evolution of birdsong.
