CASCB talk: Understanding collective migrations: From individual movements to migratory culture by Dr. Andrea Flack

Social interactions are likely to be important in animal migrations but studying social influences during migratory behavior remains a challenge. My research uses the white stork as a model system for studying different aspects of collective migrations in the field. To do this, I study migratory decisions over short and long time scales to understand the effect of the environment, learning, and social interactions on the underlying patterns of movement. I also perform different behavioral experiments in the field to disentangle the relative contribution of innate, learned, and social factors on the migratory behavior of storks.
