The effect of preventive habitat burning and/or bush encroachment on behaviour and nest success of wild birds in Africa
Many African savanna regions undergo shrub encroachment, where open savanna grassland is taken over by dense shrubs. Prescribed fire can help in maintaining and restoring open savanna. While this is a commonly-used management tool ...

The effect of early Testosterone on DNA methylation and great tit (Parus major) personality
Just like humans, great tits consistently differ in a set of correlated behavioural traits. These so called personality traits have a genetic basis, but are shaped by the environment. DNA Methylation is a chemical change of the DN ...

Life history of birds: a comparative study on reproductive behaviours
Comparative studies allow broad-scale inferences about how certain traits or behaviours evolve. Using a data-base and data from handbooks, there is a great opportunity to look at, for example, what explains variation in egg size,  ...

What a fish knows - cognition in the wild! Field study
We do regular field trips to tropical places to studz the cognitive abilities of fishes in the wild. Specifically we study: - the factors driving cognitive evolution in guppies, for which we go to Trinidad - individual differen ...

Animal Migration / Conservation Behaviour: Stork migration, human disturbance and stop over sites along the Nile in Egypt
Storks migrate annually from their northern breeding grounds to the Subsahara, across arid land and land with high human disturbance in Northern Africa. Here we will use online data from GPS tracked storks to determine their migra ...
