BioMove is a joint project of the University of Potsdam (UP) together with Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) and Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF).
Animal tracking with automated telemetry ATLAS
Scientists from the Berlin Brandenburg area (GRK BioMove, University of Potsdam, Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research IZW, Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research ZALF, Free University Berlin) use the latest automated radio-telemetry system developed by the working groups of Sivan Toledo (Tel Aviv University) and Ran Nathan (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) to track animals in agricultural landscapes in Northern Germany. Goals include briding biodiversity research and movement ecology and identifying fine scale interactions of individuals. We thank our partners from TAU and HUJI and our local supporters from the Uckermark.

Mammals move less in human-modified landscapes.
On average, mammals move distances two to three times shorter in human-modified landscapes than they do in the wild. These findings have been published today by an international team lead by researchers at the Senckenberg Nature Research Society and Goethe University Frankfurt in the journal Science. Three BioMove researchers are members of this international team. It is the first time this topic has been examined at a global scale and for many different species at once. The authors highlight that these results may have far reaching consequences for ecosystems and in turn, for society.
