In this project we measure individual differences in learning speed and flexibility of small mammals, along with decision-making and personality traits.
Animal personality may play an important role in invasion and re-colonisation processes. Here we investigate behavioural adaptations in an invasion of voles in Ireland after an accidental introduction
The project aims at elucidating the interrelations between wildlife biodiversity and dynamics of zoonotic disease at local and European scales.
Nocturnal animals are disturbed by artificial light at night (ALAN). We investigate the effects of light on nocturnal insects and small mammals.
Individual differences are rarely recognised in ecological theory. Here we investigate the importance of inter-individual differences for ecological interactions and the facillitation of coexistence.
In this project we investigate how the movement and foraging strategies of small mammals in a landscape of fear affect the diversity of experimental seed communities.
We want to disentangle potential adaptive and mechanistic explanations for pregnancy replacement (i.e. Bruce effect), suggesting that in rodents it is a form of sequential mate choice rather than a c
Here we analyse the interplay between personality, innovation propensity and spread of innovations in replicated populations of house mice living under semi-natural conditions.
In this ongoing project, we investigate among-individual variation in behavioural flexibility and innovation propensity in various small mammals species.
Here we compare the effectiveness of conventional wildflower strips and the innovative design of rolling wildflower blocks for increasing insect biodiversity.
