Soapbox science

On Sunday 4th June 2017 between 2 and 5 pm, Berlin will host its very first soapbox science event in Tempelhofer feld. Female scientists will step on their soapboxes and tell you about the fascinating work they do, so come join us and add a little extra excitement to your Sunday stroll!

From 2 to 3 pm I will be talking about the exciting science of animal social behaviour. Join me and my fellow female scientists at Tempelhofer feld!

Missed it? Here you can read back my talk.

New publication: When not to tag a bird

Tracking small songbirds generates important insights into avian ecology, but does not always work out the way you planned. We published a paper about these experiences in the Journal of Avian Biology:

Context‐dependent effects of radio transmitter attachment on a small passerine. Snijders, L., Weme, L. E., Goede, P., Savage, J. L., Oers, K., & Naguib, M. 2016. Journal of Avian Biology. DOI: 10.1111/jav.01148.

And this month I had the honour to write a blog for the British Ornithologists’ Union (BOU) to explain our findings: see the BOU blog.
