Our Wildlife Behavioural Ecology Lab has a main research program on the ecology of complex terrestrial systems at multiple spatial and temporal scales using the systems of trophically transmitted parasites with complex life cycles (Echinococcus spp.) with mammalian host as case studies.

Within this program we currently have several research projects

Wildlife Behavioural Ecology in large mammals

  • Trophic cascades in terrestrial vertebrates: the wolf-Ecosystem in the Apuane Alps, Italy
  • The fire ecology in the Monte Pisano chain, Italy
  • The Brown Hyaenas in Namibia
  • Calgary Urban Coyote Project
