New Science paper with contributions from BioMove!

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.

BioMove Telemetry Summer School

Animal tracking methods and advanced data analyses


at Biological Station in Gülpe, Havelland

October 10 - 14, 2016


This summer school will combine some hands-on exercises in manual and automatic VHS telemetry, RFID-based tracking, GPS telemetry and accelerometry with an introduction into indirect tracking methods (e.g. stable isotope analysis). Moreover, we aim to extend your knowledge in spatial data analyses. Invited experts will present current research using various tracking systems and introduce latest technologies.
