Linking behaviour to populations and communities: how can behavioural ecology inform conservation?

22 Nov - 23 Nov 2018

The most immediate response of animals to human-induced environmental change is behavioural. This can have profound repercussions at the population and community level and is therefore of crucial relevance to conservation. This NERC/ZSL symposium will bring together leading experts in behavioural ecology and conservation to explore how behavioural ecologists can make a difference in support of conservation by relating their research to ecosystem processes. The meeting will critically assess the role of the behavioural ecological community in addressing conservation priorities so far and aims to inspire future conservation-oriented research and action with real impact. Now is a highly promising time for progress in this direction because of the emergence of strong analytical tools and conceptual advances in behavioural ecology in recent years, developments which have yet to find their way fully into the conservation arena.
