CBD Seminar From individual variation in behaviour to inference on personality by Dr Even Moland

The relatively recent advent of aquatic animal tracking has resulted in a hurdle in the knowledge on movement of marine animals, over multiple scales. With the increasing access to movement data, questions arose regarding why between-individual variation in movement often surpass variation found between conspecific groupings such as sex, state or body size. The concept of repeatability of movement behaviour and how this might be linked to behavioural type or personality, is one useful framework for interpreting such variation. In this talk I present results and anecdotes from movement studies conducted by our research group on European lobster, Atlantic cod and anadromous brown trout.
