Ecology of Animal Migration 2019
During this two-week course you will get insight in a number of different methods and approaches to study the migration of birds, insects, fish, amphibians and mammals, ranging from experimental studies in the laboratory to tracking long-distance migration in wild animals. Lectures will be given by international authorities in the field as well as by researchers in the CAnMove Group at Lund University covering the following areas:
- Bird Ringing
- Migration & Dispersal
- Orientation & Navigation
- Genetics of Migration
- Migration & Population Ecology
- Evolution & Patterns of Migration
- Migration & Conservation
- Modelling Migration
In addition to lectures, there will be time for own projects, an excursion to the bird migration station at Falsterbo, demonstrations of bird ringing and orientation experiments as well as tracking and radar techniques and a tour to the wind tunnel. During the time of the course we will also have literature seminars, and you will have ample opportunities for discussion and further gain experience in presenting your research to fellow students.
The course corresponds to 3 credits (three weeks of full time studies) at Lund University and 4.5 ECTS credits.
Registration will open in spring 2019.
