Urban ecology adaptation individual variation
Wildlife is increasingly exposed to urban habitats, and the ability to cope with novel environments varies both between and within species. Here, I will analyse the effects of an urban lifestyle throughout all life stages in a coastal breeding gull and how this influences behaviour, ontogeny and habitat preferences. This project aims to increase our understanding of urban selective pressures.
