Animal Cognition: Cognition in parrots at Loropark Tenerife
This project is a cooperation with the Max Planck Institiute for Ornithology in Seewiesen, Germany and the Loropark on Tenerife. The Loropark has a cognition lab 'in which research on avian cognition using a range of parrot specie ...

Conservation Behaviour: Use of sheep in nature conservation
In this project, we are cooperating with s local Sheppard (http://grebbeveld.nl), who is keeping sheep in nature conservation areas around Wageningen that require control of vegetation growth (mainly grass, tree seedlings and shru ...

Vigilance in geese flocks along the Rhine
One benefit of group living is safety and reduced predation pressure risk. Group living animals often show vigilance behaviour, by scanning the environment, and such vigilance is traded off with other activities such as foraging.  ...

Habitat quality and reproductive performance in cooperatively breeding African birds
The savannahs and woodlands of eSwatini can be rather challenging for survival and reproduction of birds: Temperatures can be very high, rainfall scarce or lacking for months, and bush fires can destroy great parts of the vegetati ...

Missing the big picture: how cognitive processes influence emotions in dogs
Animals suffer when they are in a negative emotional state. However, measuring emotions in animals is difficult because they cannot tell us how they feel. Developing better ways to assess animal emotions could help us to improve m ...

Conservation Behaviour: Wetland bird behaviour and community structure along the Nile in Egypt
The wetlands along the Nile provide a prime case to study human-wildlife conflicts and human settlements and bird habitats are confined to the small linear habitat along the Nile. The thesis will be embedded in large interdiscipli ...

Animal Cooperation: Why do birds help each other?
In some birds species individuals forego own reproduction in order to help others in raising their offspring. Since evolutionary theory predicts selfish behaviour, how can we explain such seemingly selfless behaviour? We catch and ...

Do helpers-at-the-nest reduce the chance of cuckoo parasitism?
One commonly proposed benefit of group living of birds is that individuals in groups are better to prevent cuckoos laying an egg in their nest. However, direct study and evidence of this hypothesis is rare. In Eswatini, we study a ...

Animal Communication: Male song and female behaviour in the great tit (Parus major)
Male song is a sexually selected trait and linked to male quality. However, female behaviour, especially the timing when she leaves the nestbox in the morning, might affect how long a male keeps singing at dawn. Besides this, male ...

Animal Communication: Neighbourhood effects on singing activity in the great tit (Parus major)
Individuals affect each other in a social network. Yet, the effects individuals have on each other when signalling in a network is not well understood in animal societies. In birds, the decision whether a male sings on a given mor ...
