Animal Behaviour

BHE20303

Over deze cursus

This course introduces students to the field of Animal Behaviour, considering the four questions of Tinbergen, i.e. causation, development, function, and evolution of behaviour. Students also learn about methods in Animal Behaviour, and apply this knowledge during a practical. The course will provide students with important basic tools, knowledge, and experience for studying animal behaviour. Finally, students are instructed in best practices in science, and in scientific writing. As part of the course students write a scientific paper in English in the style of a scientific publication using data collected and analysed during the practical.
