THE LAB MEMBERS
To better understand the processes shaping seasonal movement by the herbivore community and how this influences energy gain and risk of predation.
Behavioural responses in relation to predation risk and spatial and temporal variation in the quantity and nutritional quality of vegetation.
Adaptive herbivore movement in relation to seasonal variation in resource availability.
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.
Documenting how biodiversity in the Serengeti varies across different habitats and over time.
Seasonal and spatial variation in resources and its effect on ecological interactions among plants, herbivores, and carnivores.
