    A wind tunnel with state-of-the-art technologies to study animal flight.
  • Several well developed tracking systems, like tracking radar, radio telemetry, satellite telemetry, nanoparticle tracking and LUMBO.
  • Field Sites
    Many field sites with active projects, e.g. the decade-long monitoring of the migratory movements of fishes at Lake Krankesjön using PIT-tag technology.
  • Stimulating environment
    A stimulating academic environment, with an annual CAnMove conference, multiple topic-specific symposia each year (e.g. genetics of movement, partial migration) and a monthly seminar series.
