Modeling motives for movement: theory for why animals migrate

Date & time

1pm 8 March 2012


Gould Seminar Room (Room 235), Building 116, Daley Road, ANU.


Allison Shaw, Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University

In this talk I will present some of my dissertation research, in which I use a combination of analytic models and individual-based simulations to study migration as an adaptive behavior and to understand what ecological conditions select for migration. I will describe the types of motivation drive migration and how these combine into different round-trip migration patterns.
