Welcome to the Behavioural Ecology
Group website

The Behavioural Ecology Group of the University of Copenhagen studies social behaviour and communication in animals

OUR OBJECTIVES

Vertebrate Behaviour, Emotion, Communication and Cognition: The Behavioural Ecology Group focuses on the behaviour of vertebrates, and in particular on mammals and birds. Our main projects combine the topics of acoustic communication, emotions, cognition and social interactions, in order to understand how emotions influence communication and cognition, how emotions are transmitted between individuals and influence social relationships, and how acoustic communication affects social interactions. We are also interested in how our research can be used to improve animal welfare and for conservation purpose.
