Aims, contents and method of the course

In different projects behavioural observations - in the field or laboratory - are combined with physiological measurements such as hormone analyzes (e.g. cortisol related to stress or testosterone in terms of reproductive behaviour).
The time management can be (apart from the activity patterns of the animals) coordinated in the group according to individual requirements.
In the preliminary online meeting the projects will be presented by the supervisors, thereafter the participants can choose their preferred project.
The further work is done in small groups with the respective supervisor. On two dates during the semester, all groups meet and report on the progress of their projects, these will be organized as online meetings. Dates: 15. April and 24. June, 15:15
