Animal Navigation Lab
Navigation across time and space
Our research interests focus on how animals have evolved the capacity to navigate across space and to time their movements relative to varying environmental resources. We use different techniques to study individual birds in the lab and during natural migrations to understand the adaptations and challenges birds are facing when moving across landscapes.
An experimental comparative approach
We focus on how birds are able to cope with time and space in their endogenous migration programs, and what components cause variations in migration phenotypes. We use an experimental comparative approach to study ecophysiology, behavior and migration performance in the lab and in the wild for individual birds.
