Do large animals indeed respond to the Earth's magnetic field?
Recent 2008 and 2011 papers suggest that cattle and deer may respond to the Earth's magnetic field, by aligning their bodies in a north-south direction. Dr Begall and her colleagues published their confirmatory findings in the Pro ...

Understanding and preventing colony collapses in honeybees
High losses of managed honeybee (Apis mellifera) colonies reduce pollination, which will threaten our ability to maintain sufficient crop production. To date, no individual factor has been attributed to the recent high losses of h ...

Integrating avian life history, physiology and immune function: autoimmunity and immunosenescence in a cohort of aging birds.
The age of individual animals and the age structure of populations can influence host physiology, immune function, and the spread of infectious disease. Since 2007, 20 pigeons (hatched ca. December 2005) have been sampled least qu ...

Urban ecology: Effects of insect abundance on urban bird communities
Recent studies have indicated that insect numbers have declined drastically over the last 50 years or so. This probably also has negative effects on birds. However, we know very little about insects in urban landscapes and how thi ...

Internship bij Bureau Waardenburg: Onderzoek aan verstoringsafstanden van windturbines
Verstoringsafstanden verschillen per soort. Maar wat bepaalt de verstoringsafstand? Tijd van het jaar, locatie van het windpark, grootte van de vogel, grootte van de groep? Er is al veel gepubliceerd over verstoringsafstanden, maa ...
