C-Wild Warrington Lab
Research in the C-Wild Warrington Lab aims to investigate social evolution and how social behaviors and group living allow animals to cope with environmental change, including the impacts of climate change. We use field-based mensurative and manipulative experiments with laboratory approaches (e.g. genetics), including employing novel datalogging technology to gain information about how animals behave in a variety of ecological conditions.
Model systems include Cape ground squirrels (collaborations with Prof. Jane Waterman, University of Manitoba, Canada) and Siberian Jays (with PD Dr. Michael Griesser, University of Konstanz, Germany).
