Movement Ecology recently emerged as an independent discipline that integrates movement, its consequences and its origins across taxonomic groups.

It specifically considers individual behavioral responses to environmental variation, while taking into account key life-history traits and evolutionary constraints on navigation and motion capacities. As such, movement ecology links three major research disciplines: Ecology, Evolution and Behavior (EEB). This conference will explore these links by presenting the most recent discoveries in this exciting field of research, covering four major themes and a closing synthesis.

This GRC will be held in conjunction with a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on the same topic. This seminar is aimed at young researchers (PhD, post-docs) and aims to favour the exchange of ideas with peers and discussions with invited mentors to promote career development. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
