AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Fredrik Christiansen

Population consequences of disturbance: Can individual changes in animal behaviour affect populations?

Info about event


Monday 2 December 2019,  at 14:15 - 15:15


The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Room 201




Wildlife populations are driven by the behaviour of its individuals. While human disturbance is known to affect the behaviour of individual animals, the resulting population consequences are often difficult to predict. In this talk, I examine the population consequences of disturbance on baleen whales, and the relationship between animal behaviour, bioenergetics and population dynamics.
