Most recently we’ve started working on animal behaviour projects with an applied aspect. This includes how environmental change (temperature, turbidity, noise, invasive species (like the Nile tilapia pictured above)) is affecting behavioural interactions, and also the behavioural adaptations animals can employ to mitigate, or even take advantage of, such change. Our paper “Anthropogenic noise pollution from pile-driving disrupts the structure and dynamics of fish shoals” is a good example of this (video below).
