Identifying horse-directed parenting styles
Parenting styles are known to impact on behavioural development in children and recently we identified dog-directed parenting styles. Next we want to find out if parenting styles exist also in the owner – horse relationships. This ...

Reproductive strategies in a changing world
On top of rising temperatures, contemporary climate change is increasing the variability of weather patterns as well as the frequency, duration and severity of extreme events. A critical consequence of these changing patterns is f ...

The evolution of reproductive flexibility in birds
Studies of life-history evolution have historically focused on the variation in mean values of traits, and regularly assume fixed reproductive values within species. However, the extent to which individuals can flexibly respond to ...

Conservation Behaviour: Effectiveness of animal conditioning interventions in mitigating Human-Wildlife conflicts
We did a comprehensive search for publications potentially containing evidence on the effectiveness of animal conditioning interventions in reducing Human-wildlife conflicts. The next steps are to screen the studies for relevance  ...

Social Behaviour: Social foraging in wild guppies (Poecilia reticulata)
For several years we have conducted social foraging experiments with individually-marked guppies in Trinidad and collected video data. The most recent field season was cut short by the Corona crisis but we were still able to colle ...

Animal cognition: Mate choice for cognition- Do females fall for clever males? Laboratory based experimental work.
Being intelligent has many advantages. For a female guppy this means higher chances of survival under predator pressure, better ability to adapt to a changing environment, making more correct mate choices and generally learning fa ...

Animal cognition: Testing for theory of mind in fish. Laboratory based experimental work.
Fish are known to learn socially and copy the behaviour of conspecifics especially in a mate choice and foraging context. But are they also capable to assess the cognitive skills of another individual and adjust their copying or s ...

URGENT - Trinidad - field work in the Caribbean
Predation is a ubiquitous part of nature, shaping the life history, morphology and behaviour of prey. This is particularly well studied in guppies, where the presence of predators leads to a suite of changes for higher fecundity,  ...

Costs and benefits of family-living in black wheatears – Autumn fieldwork in Spain
Black wheatears are a passerine bird that live in the Iberian peninsula and northern Africa. While most of the offspring disperse from the parental territory when they reach independence, some juveniles from each family delay disp ...
