Wolfgang Fiedler

Speaker Details
  • My research interest is focused primarily on the phenology of bird movements as wellas the consequences of migratory behavior for he bird on one hand as well as for the environment on the other hand. The first aspect comprises morphological adaptations of the flight apparatus (wing shape, ultrastructures on the wing) and of the immune system as well as behavioral adaptations e.g. in distance and timing of migration, movement strategies, temporal schedules and the incorporation of movement in the annual calendar where also time for breeding and molting is needed. With respect to the effects of bird migration on the environment my current main interest focuses on the seed dispersal of frugivores and the dispersal of pathogens through migrating waterbirds.
