As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Announcing New Thematic Series
We are proud to announce a new thematic series with the title 'Integrating Movement Ecology with Biodiversity Research'.Read More
Identifying resting locations of a small elusive forest carnivore using a two-stage model accounting for GPS measurement error and hidden behavioral states
The ‘migratory connectivity’ concept, and its applicability to insect migrants.
Aims and scope
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Movement Ecology is proud to present the Proceedings of the 6th International Bio-Logging Science Symposium, in conjunction with Animal Biotelemetry.
Ran Nathan is a professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, and director of the Minerva Center for Movement Ecology. His Movement Ecology Lab studies foraging, dispersal, migration and other types of movements in plants and animals, mostly birds. These studies typically combine advanced biotelemetry of free-ranging animals, mechanistic models, molecular tools, and various observational and experimental approaches in the laboratory and in the field, both in Israel and around the world.
Luca Giuggioli is a faculty member of the Department of Engineering Mathematics and the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol, UK, and a core member of the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences. Work in his lab focuses on addressing fundamental questions in animal ecology to explain a variety of phenomena including behavioural interactions, foraging, social spacing, collective movement and epidemic disease spread. These studies involve the use of mathematical, computational and statistical techniques to develop mechanistic models of organism movement that explain empirical observations.
