  • Animal ecology
    • The Fauna Ecology department works on applied research projects in the field of animal ecology, wildlife management and monitoring, and major impact assessments. Our expertise focuses mainly on the Waddensea and adjacent coastal areas, the ecology of wetlands and wetland birds, and the population ecology of several species. Together with other groups within A&W we are working intensively on impact assessments (EIA) and long-term monitoring projects such as the ecological effects of windfarms near Natura 2000 areas. The FE group is also active in an international context and we are working on several projects on wetland and savanna ecology in West Africa.
