Bird Ringing Demonstration at Farmoor Res Oxon, 25th February 2012
A study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B shows that foraging in groups consisting of mixed personality types can have emergent properties not found in uniform groups. In flocks of wild great tits, bold birds initiated movements towards unexploited areas in food patches, whereas shy birds maintained cohesion of the flock, resulting in better use of resources and suggesting a role for personality in leader-follower polymorphisms.
The EGI was strongly represented at the recent ISBE, ABS and IOC conferences held in New York, Princeton and Tokyo in August this year. A total of 19 talks, 3 posters and 4 symposia/round-tables organised, together with many opportunities to catch up with former EGI-ers ensured a very fruitful and productive few weeks.
