About the Project
Not only is nest building a relatively undescribed behaviour, how temperature elicits changes in a bird’s behaviour is still relatively unknown. The observational and experimental behavioural work will be supplemented by neural and physiological analyses to explore the mechanistic basis of temperature responses.
This project would offer the successful candidate a wide range of training opportunities including UK field work, overseas lab work, experimental design, neurobiology, and statistical analysis of a range of types of data. There will be multiple opportunities to present data to Healy’s lab group, within the School, and at the Roslin Institute, and at both national (e.g. ASAB) and international conferences. All of Healy and Meddle’s students are encouraged to publish their data during their PhD and to take part in presenting their data to non-academic audiences.
