Movement Ecology

Why and how organisms move? Which biotic and abiotic factors influence their movement? And what are the ecological consequences of their movement? To explore such questions, we use different geotechnologies to monitor movement (VHF and GPS tags, radio data loggers, and harmonic radars), as well as new remote sensing products, landscape analysis, and modern analytical tools (mainly statistical and individual-based models). Our aim is to understand how organism movement is related to ecological processes at the individual, population and community levels, using a landscape approach. We also promote the Movement Ecology Group, a study group focused in the discussion of relevant ecological topics to create a common background on sampling design, modelling, statistical analysis and fieldwork methods for movement ecology studies.
