We use state-of-the-art equipment to research migratory birds from their breeding grounds to Africa and lay the foundations for their protection beyond national borders. We work primarily with radar, tracking technology and modelling, plus molecular, physiological and isotope methods.
Migratory birds can host a large variety of parasites. Understanding the mechanisms of host-parasite-interactions is com ...
