Laboratory of Avian Ecology

Head: dr. MINDAUGAS DAGYS

The main research trends are investigations of global change in ecosystems and anthropogenic effect on birds (population changes, vulnerability, adaptation, microevolution). Special focus is put on waterfowl research and conservation problems in the Baltic Sea, Curonian Lagoon and internal waters. GIS technologies are used to study spatial variability in bird populations and landscape. The researchers of the Laboratory maintain close cooperation with scientific centres of foreign countries, perform research contracted by national and international organizations and foundations, perform applied research and render experimental development services to different organizations and industries.
