Avian Acoustics Research
We study the ecology and behaviour of New Zealand bellbird, North Island saddleback and other birds. Our focus is on the function and evolution of bird song.
Ecology, Behaviour and Conservation
We are a broad group of behavioural ecologists and conservationists with a focus on New Zealand birds and reptiles.
Our research focuses include the anthropogenic impacts on marine systems, the biology and population ecology of marine organisms and marine ecosystem dynamics.
Human-Wildlife Interaction Research
Our research interests include animal behavioural ecology and the effect of human induced changes on behaviour, life history and fitness of wild animal populations
Evolutionary Ecology Group
Our group seeks to address major questions in evolutionary ecology, such as how global patterns of biodiversity and species life history traits inform us about evolutionary processes.
Invertebrate Communication and Ecology
Our research investigates how the evolutionary, developmental and social history of an individual influences adult behaviour, with a focus on the functions and mechanisms underlying behaviour itself.
