This website is part of the PhD project of Jente Ottenburghs (Wageningen University, the Netherlands). The goal is the gather the bulk of scientific literature in one central place in order to provide an extensive overview and stimulate further research.

I am also available to give talks on avian hybridization in general or about particular bird groups. Only travel costs will be taken into account.

You can follow the updates on the Facebook-page and Twitter.

Feel free to contact me.


Short Bio

Jente Ottenburghs obtained his Bachelor Degree in Biologie (UHasselt) and Master Degree in Evolutionary Biology (University of Antwerp). In 2016, he finished his PhD at the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands. His PhD project focused on the genomic consequences of hybridization between different goose species (more information here). Now, he is studying the evolution of tRNA in birds at the Karolina Institutet in Stockholm (Sweden). Next year, he will continue his goose work at Uppsala University (Sweden).

In addition, he writes a blog on evolutionary biology and regularly contributes to the Dutch popular science website Scientias.
