2019 Gordon Research Conference
2019 Gordon Research Conference on:
Movement Ecology of Animals
Animal Movement as a Link Between Ecology, Evolution and Behavior
Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco, Lucca (Barga), Italy
Chair: Ran Nathan
Due to its critical role in shaping ecological and evolutionary processes, the movement of organisms has been studied extensively and intensively since the early days of scientific inquiry. Movement Ecology recently emerged as an independent discipline that integrates movement, its consequences and its origins across taxonomic groups. It specifically considers individual behavioral responses to environmental variation, while taking into account key life-history traits and evolutionary constraints on navigation and motion capacities. As such, movement ecology links three major research disciplines: Ecology, Evolution and Behavior (EEB). This conference will explore these links by presenting the most recent discoveries in this exciting field of research, covering four major themes and a closing synthesis.
Applications for this meeting must be submitted by February 3, 2019.
