How do juvenile herring gulls stop and change behaviour in the wild. A novel eco-deco approach

Project Details


For this study, juvenile herring gulls with different behavioural profiles are reared and then released into the wild. Via GPS loggers, the behaviour and habitat use of the juvenile gulls is closely monitored. The results are used to make predictions about survival and the exploratory behaviour of the wild population that, under the influence of climate change and anthropogenic pressures, must increasingly change its breeding and foraging behaviour.
