Behavioural Ecology

Behavioural responses to human-induced environmental change

The first response of organisms to environmental change is often behavioural. We investigate how organism respond behaviourally to rapid human-induced environmental changes, and what the consequences are for populations, communities and ecosystems.
Our research topics range from effects of eutrophication and climate change to the impact of light pollution, focussing on various 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.
