Impact of Anthropogenic Noise on Physiology, Behaviour, and Fitness

Our world is noisy and is becoming ever more polluted with noise as urbanization expands across the globe.

Our research group investigates whether and how anthropogenic noise affects the physiology, the behaviour, and the fitness of birds, with the long-term goal to better understand the resulting eco-evolutionary processes.
