Our unit investigates the behavioural ecology of Vertebrates in natural and experimental environments through the study of social structures, mating tactics, communication systems, biological rhythms, space utilisation and population dynamics. Ultimately, we aim at characterising the ontogeny and plasticity of behaviours, their adaptive values for the individuals, populations and species, which intimately govern the evolution and biological diversity of animals.
