My poster for Behaviour 2013

I’m going to be spending the next few days in Newcastle at Behaviour 2013, a conference billed as the largest gathering of researchers working in the field of animal behaviour this year. Today we had talks on assassin bugs that actually attack and eat spiders on their webs, to bats that home in on the call of their unfortunate prey, the túngara frog. Tomorrow it all starts again bright and early with talks on everything from avian cognition to social learning and parental care. It’s so rare to be in a place where everyone shares my enthusiasm for animal behaviour, it’s great!

I’m not just going to listen to talks though, oh no,  I’m also presenting a poster showing some of what I’ve been working on for the last year. For those of you that won’t be there I thought I’d put the poster up here, I’ve received some good feedback on this so far but if you have any comments I’d love to hear them.

  1. Not a scientific comment, but awww, Donna Nook! I used to watch seals every year there as a kid! There used to be no fences and the seals would chase you if you got too close, it was, er, educational. The poster’s really interesting, hope it went down well.

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you like the poster, I’m got some good comments on it at the conference too. Donna Nook is an amazing place, I felt very lucky to work there, although it has fences now you can still get really close and it’s well worth the trip. The seal population is growing really fast too (1700+ pups this year!) so there might even more seals than you remember!
