Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds. This science has a long history and studies on birds have helped develop several key concepts in evolution, behavior and ecology.
The study of ornithology has also provided insights into instinct, learning, ecological niches, guilds, island biogeography, phylogeography and conservation, among others.
