Understanding diversity in Nature requires insight on the proximate contribution of genetic and ecological factors shaping organism phenotype. My research lies at the crossroads of animal behavioural ecology, ecophysiology, and evolutionary biology. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, and bridging the gap between proximate and ultimate research, I investigate how animals, both birds and mammals, adapt (behaviour and physiology) to a continuously changing environment. I am interested in particular in the evolution of group living, and how social and non-social stimuli may shape physiological and behavioural strategies.
