Movement Ecology of Animals
Gordon Research Conference
Animal Movement as a Link Between Ecology, Evolution and Behavior
March 3 – 8, 2019
Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco
Lucca (Barga), IT
Movement Ecology recently emerged as an independent discipline that integrates movement, its consequences and its origins across taxonomic groups. It specifically considers individual behavioral responses to environmental variation, while taking into account key life-history traits and evolutionary constraints on navigation and motion capacities. As such, movement ecology links three major research disciplines: Ecology, Evolution and Behavior (EEB). This conference will explore these links by presenting the most recent discoveries in this exciting field of research, covering four major themes and a closing synthesis.
Please see the conference website for more information and the list of speakers.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on the same topic. This seminar is aimed at young researchers (PhD, post-docs) and aims to favor the exchange of ideas with peers and discussions with invited mentors to promote career development. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
Applications for this meeting must be submitted before February 3, 2019. However, please apply early, as the number of participants is limited and the meeting may quickly become oversubscribed (full).
