How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Currently I am working at the Konrad Lorenz Research Station investigating whether the performance of carrion crows in a touch screen task is influenced by the presence of a conspecific.

- Effectiveness of habitat enhancement for natural predators in differing landscapes
- Planted buckwheat strips to attract lady beetles to soybean fields, then measured the levels of damage and aphid population size in landscapes of varying complexity.
Leaf-cutter ants harvest leaves from the trees surrounding their nest and transport them back to feed their symbiotic fungus, which is the food supply for the colony. The leaf foraging process involves many workers performing specialized tasks in a supply chain that spans from trees hundreds of meters away to the deep chambers of their subterranean...
Leaf-cutter ants Atta colombica form supply chains to move leaf fragments from their foraging sites to the nest of the colony. The ants then mulch these leaf fragments into substrate for the fungus they grow for food. The overall efficiency of this transportation system depends on the dynamic integration of the supply rate of the cutter ants, the l...
