CAnMove is a centre of excellence for trans-disciplinary research on the causes and consequences of animal movements, funded by a Linnaeus grant from the Swedish Research Council and Lund University. Our vision is to become a world-leading centre for research on animal movement.

CAnMove research aims to resolve some of the most challenging questions in biology, such as the genetic control programs of migration, the mechanisms for animal navigation, the fluid dynamics of animal flight, and the evolution of migration. In CAnMove we also study dispersal and speciation, effects of movements on populations, spread of diseases and how climate change affect migrating animals.
