How do birds avoid their competitors?

Our recent paper published in the Journal of Animal Ecology shows how birds avoid their sibling-species competitors. We used data on abundance of two closely related passerine species, the Common Nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) and the Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia), collected across their syntopy, allotopy and allopatry. We found that interspecific competition gave marked imprints on […]

New paper: Behavioural responses to potential dispersal cues in eriophyid mites

Our recent article published in Scientific Reports is available online! In this study, we investigated behavioral responses of two passively dispersing cereal-feeding eriophyoid mites: wheat curl mite (WCM, Aceria tosichella) and cereal rust mite (CRM, Abacarus hystrix) to potential dispersal cues. We found that wind was the most important cue influencing the mites’ behavior, what […]
