Avian nutrition and metabolism

Project: Research

Description

The current knowledge about avian nutrition and its impacts are mainly a result of research made by the poultry industry. We still know surprisingly little about nutrition of wild birds and its effect on individual health and performance, along with the potential consequences on the population level. In our research we aim to cover a broad range of questions related to the effects of avian nutrition in the wild, specifically those arising from anthropogenic sources. Our current focus is on fatty acid composition of diets and its effects on development, health, metabolism and thermoregulation.
