Projects of the research group "Evolutionary Physiology"

We are exploring the linkage between the hormones testosterone and corticosterone with behavior and physiology in various bird species. [more]
In this research project, I investigate the developmental responses of endotherms to thermal stress under the selective pressure of global warming... [more]
We investigate the physiological routes by which glucocorticoids determine telomere dynamics during growth and the resulting fitness consequences. [more]
How are glucocorticoids regulated before and during reproduction in vertebrates with a different pace of life? [more]
