The link between behavioural consistency and migration

Rado Seminar by Iris Bontekoe
  • Date: Nov 25, 2022
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM (Local Time Germany)
  • Speaker: Iris Bontekoe
  • Location: Hybrid meeting
  • Room: Seminar room MPI-AB Möggingen + Online
  • Host: Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior
Individuals often differ in their behaviour. Variation in behavioural consistency has consequences for ecological and evolutionary processes. However, little is known regarding the influence of behavioural consistency on migration. I am planning to investigate the influence of behavioural ... [more]

  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM (Local Time Germany)
  • Speaker: Hanna Kokko
  • Hanna Kokko is currently Professor at the University of Zurich, interested in the evolutionary ecology of sexual and asexual reproduction, analysis and management of animal populations, evolution of reproductive and social strategies, sustainability science. Recently, Hanna Kokko has been awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship and has been appointed to become one of the founding directors of an institute for quantitative and computer-aided biosciences at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.

Populations are usually not panmictic, where every individual is equally likely to meet any other individual. I will present two modelling efforts to understand how this fact impacts (a) mate choice and (b) the effect of sexual dimorphism on species coexistence. The first model will look at local ... [more]

Collective Behaviour and Ecosystem Dynamics

  • Date: Nov 15, 2022
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM (Local Time Germany)
  • Speaker: Benjamin Dalziel

  • Room: Seminar room MPI-AB Bücklestrasse + Online
  • Host: Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior
  • Contact: all.science@ab.mpg.de
Collective behaviour is common in many taxa, and thus occurs across ecosystems, from biofilms to cities. Through cross-scale feedback loops between individuals, populations and their environments, collective behaviour has the potential to shape ecosystem processes, and to be driven by ecosystem ...

Aggregation, one of the most basic social phenomena, is widespread among insects and arthropods (including species vector disease, agricultural pests,…).. For instance, the selection of a valuable site (e.g. the gathering of individuals in particular shelters) and the spatial organization of the ... [more]
