Movement and food web dynamics across a heterogeneous landscape. 

Goal

To better understand the processes shaping seasonal movement by the herbivore community and how this influences energy gain and risk of predation. 

Herbivore behaviour

Behavioural responses in relation to predation risk and spatial and temporal variation in the quantity and nutritional quality of vegetation. 

 

Movement Patterns In Serengeti

Adaptive herbivore movement in relation to seasonal variation in resource availability. 

Group dynamics and predation risk

Predation risk for herbivores is strongly shaped by the size of herbivore groups and by the size of groups of their predators, with surprising consequences. 

Serengeti biodiversity

Documenting how biodiversity in the Serengeti varies across different habitats and over time.

Spatio-temporal foodweb dynamics

Seasonal and spatial variation in resources and its effect on ecological interactions among plants, herbivores, and carnivores.
