Konstanz hosts animal behaviour institute

Scientists will investigate the collective behaviour and movement patterns of animals in a state-of-the-art institute to be created in Konstanz.

The Max Planck Society has announced it will set up the Institute of Animal Behavior, which will focus on quantitative research into how animals interact with each other and their environment.

“Research into animal behaviour and movements can only succeed if scientists from a wide range of disciplines work together,” said Martin Wikelski, a researcher of animal migration. The new institute will investigate animal groups as diverse as locusts, fish, flying foxes, baboons, and birds, according to a statement published on 7 May.
