Migration Ecology Course for PhD students

The biannual course in migration ecology at Lund University started yesterday. After an introduction the students give short, 15 min, presentations about their projects during the first two days. Then, the first lecture day starts as usual with locomotion. This years line-up is Colin Pennycuick, Anders Hedenström, Florian Muijres and Christoffer Johansson. As before we focus on animal flight and swimming. There is also an exercise involving the measurement of aerodynamic morphology and using it to calculate various performance measures using Colin Pennycuick's progrom Flight. This course is a great experience for both students and lecturers. For more information about the program have a look at www.canmove.se.
