    Are you a fan of the Açai berry? Find out how it’s harvested as the ornithology team stops to collect this treat on their way to their last study site. This is the seventh installment in a series of video journals by Dr. Jason Weckstein documenting the 2007 joint expedition between The Field Museum and Brazil’s Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi to survey birds along the Rio Japurá and its tributaries. During the expedition, team members cataloged species, collected specimens, recorded bird vocalizations, and sampled the parasites and DNA of birds from both sides of the Japurá’s banks. The team’s subsequent research reveals patterns in the evolution and distribution of Amazonian diversity that impact both our understanding of the evolutionary history in the region and the current geographical boundaries of areas targeted for conservation.
