Dr. Krantz taught at UNF from 1972 to 1977.  He created an extremely unique course called Human Conflict: Black and White that received national media attention. This course was taught during a time when Jacksonville was in the throes of integration and upheaval. Dr. Kranz's research has been featured on NPR's All Things Considered

Like mammals, birds form complex groups with long term, often lifetime, relationships. However, our understanding of the social and developmental processes shaping the emergence of avian social structure are not well known. Many vertebrates inhabit dynamic and loosely structured groups where group size and social composition continually fluctuates. The ability to sustain nonrandom interaction preferences across such changes is important for maintaining social organization over time. Despite this, we know little about the development of individual social preferences that ultimately give rise to a group’s social organization. Dr. Kohn will present a series of studies that highlight how the development of stable female social interaction networks in Brown-headed Cowbirds, Gouldian Finches, Roseate Spoonbills and Budgerigars shapes the organization of flocks, and often predicts individual reproductive outcomes. These findings highlight how within-group interactions define the complex structure of avian societies and can select for individual behavioral traits.
