Our research encompasses…

…to understand how non-lethal effects on individuals, such as variation in condition, indirect genetic effects, and fear, influence seasonal variation in fitness and scale-up to affect the dynamics of populations.

…to determine how events in one season carry-over to influence success in subsequent seasons.

…to detail migratory pathways and dispersal and then use this information for building predictive population models.


…between their breeding and non-breeding grounds to understand how environmental change influences fitness and long-term population dynamics.
