Animal Ecology

The Animal Ecology team conducts applied ecological research aimed at the protection, restoration and management of wild fauna (mammals, birds, insects, reptiles and amphibians). With our research we contribute to the conservation and restoration of biodiversity. From DNA to landscape scale, we unravel ecological processes, relationships between species and interactions with environmental variables. We study the influence of human activities on ecosystems as well as human-wildlife conflicts such as nuisance and risks of spreading diseases. We work for a wide group of (international) clients.
