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 ...

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 ...

Internship at the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency: "Get your hands on biodiversity change"
The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (MNP) provides the Dutch government with information on a wide variety of environmental issues that is based on its extensive scientific knowledge and expertise. Policy makers use MN ...

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 ...

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 ...

Lizards and the island syndrome: are island lizards more fearless than their mainland relatives?
Start/end dates have some flexibility. Island animals often differ from their closest relatives on the mainland in characteristic ways (e.g., reduced dispersal, reduced reproductive output, etc.). These differences have been te ...
