Movement Ecology

Movement Ecology

The Movement Ecology working group aims to forecast the impact of environmental change on the distribution, abundance and movement patterns of plants, animals and microbes, and how this movement affects humans’ interests.

Projects include Vector Shield, an early warning system of vector-borne disease risk, such as Zika virus and Lyme disease; Wildlife Migration Dynamic Mapping, an interactive, web-based map of wildlife migration in Indiana; Maintenance of Biodiversity; Isotopic Studies of Migration, which examines the impact of environmental change on animal and plant populations; and other lab and field research to understand species’ abilities to adapt to environmental change.
