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 ...

Analysis of the spatial distribution of African Swine Fever.
Analysis of the spatial distribution of African Swine fever in Africa under influence of livestock densities, wildlife (bushpig, warthog) and environmental/climatic variables. The challenge will be to find the factors that are re ...

Comparing immune defence in arctic- and temperate-breeding geese
Over the past few decades barnacle geese have successfully colonized new breeding areas outside their traditional Arctic distribution, including temperate sites in the Baltic and North Sea. This offers a unique situation for compa ...

Integrating avian life history, physiology and immune function: are natural antibodies at the nexus of phylogeny, life history, and disease reservoir competence?
Complex relationships exist between phylogeny, life history, disease reservoir competence, and immune function. One component of the immune system that might serve as a nexus linking the other factors is "natural antibodies" (or N ...

Ladakh, India: Insects and aquatic bugs in the Himalayas
The Resource Ecology Group has been working the last 12 years in the Trans-Himalayan area of Ladakh. This area of India lies between the Himalayas and Tibet (China). Its capital city is Leh, situated at about 3400 m above sea leve ...

Comparing mice and voles: Immune function of mice and voles in relation to ticks and infection with Borrelia burgdorferi s.l.
Yearly, approximately 25.000 people are diagnosed with Lyme borreliosis in the Netherlands. Lyme borreliosis is caused by a bacterial complex Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. transmitted by ticks. In the Netherlands, the main cause for h ...

Effects of flight and other physiological challenges on immune function in birds.
Racing (or homing) pigeons are a sort of animal athletes. We know in humans exercise can affect immune defense and possibly susceptibility to disease. Interest in connections between exercise/movement and disease ecology of animal ...

Ecology of host-tick-pathogen interactions
Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) is among the most important vector-borne diseases in Europe and Eurasia. Both the distribution and number of cases have increased during the past decades, and the virus is now also endemic in t ...
