Urbanisering och dess påverkan på fåglar

Projekt: Forskning

Beskrivning

Urban-dwelling birds can benefit from the high abundance of anthropogenic foods, nest boxes for breeding and lower predation pressures (apart from areas where domestic cats are present). On the down side, the urban environment is associated with a number of environmental stressors (e.g. light, noise and air pollution) which pose physiological stress on urban-dwelling animals, including humans.

In our research we aim to cover a broad range of questions related to the effects of urbanization on birds ranging from genetic polymorphism, gene expression and regulation through to physiological and ecological impacts. Some examples of our exciting work are detailed below.
