Description
julia_myatt

Part of the School of Biosciences' new Autumn Biology Lecture Series. We often picture people who study animal behaviour as standing in a muddy field with a clipboard, pen and binoculars. While this is often still the case(!), new technology is enabling field biologists to address previously unanswerable questions and take our level of understanding to a new level. In this talk we will explore some of the questions we are currently trying to answer, ranging from the behaviour of your domestic pets to hunting in African wild dogs. Open to all who are interested in the study of Biology. Particularly suitable for A-Level students. The lectures are free of charge. All welcome to attend.
