Reproductive microbiome of house sparrows
General background Animals live and evolve in a microbial world. Thus, it is hardly surprising that every animal hosts a diversity of microbial communities (i.e. microbiomes) in and on their bodies. Importantly, microbiomes are e ...

What determines predation risk of wild birds’ nests? – A field study in Africa
Nest predation is a major cause of reproductive failure in birds. Therefore birds are predicted to adopt behavioural strategies to avoid predation. In this project you will determine what cause predation: assessed factors include  ...

Does predation risk promote cooperation in wild birds? – an experimental study
One major proposed benefit of cooperation in animals is that cooperation may reduce predation risk. More individuals may be more vigilant and may detect predators earlier, or they may be more successful in mobbing predators and ch ...

Spatial Behaviour: Great tit (Parus major) personality in space
Type: Spatial data analysis of previously collected data (Encounternet) Topic: Spatial associations may reflect social behaviour – preferences or avoidance of conspecifics or certain phenotypes, but may also be affected by enviro ...

Avian Malaria: does it negatively affect individuals’ behaviour and health?
Avian malaria is a common disease in birds. These blood parasites are predicted to negatively affect individuals’health and reproduction. However, results of tests of the effects of malaria are mixed; potentially this is because i ...

Animal Communication: The ecology of acoustic communication
Animal signals underly selection by the acoustic properties of the environment in which they are used to communicate. During transmission signals degrade and attenuate so that a distant receiver will make its decision based on a s ...
