About the Author(s)

Dr. Krista N. Oswald completed her Honours BSc at Dalhousie University in Canada before moving to South Africa from 2015 through 2019 to complete an MSc and PhD studying climate vulnerability on Cape Rockjumpers. Her dissertation involved mainly an examination of temperature effects on Cape Rockjumpers that included their physiology (cold responses, heat responses, and comparisons of adult to juveniles), behavior, reproductive success (nest failure and provisioning), and population genetics. She is now working on publishing the remaining data, working for North Winds Environmental Services, and actively seeking options for the next stage in her career. You can see more about her research on her website, follow her on twitter, eBird, iNaturalist, or instagram.
