Behavioural Ecology

Behavioural responses to human-induced environmental change

Environments around the world are changing rapidly because of human activities. We investigate how organisms respond to these changes - focussing on their behavioural responses - and the consequences the responses have for populations, communities and ecosystems.

Our research topics range from effects of specific stressors, like climate change and light pollution, to how negative effects can be mitigated, using various species as model organisms, both terrestrial and aquatic. In addition, we synthesise the field through reviews, both traditional and systematic, and build conceptual frameworks to generate predictions and guide empirical and theoretical work.
