|Research Outline||Homing behaviours of seabirds: external/internal factors and evolutionary process shaping movement patterns|
My research subjects are seabirds such as shearwaters and penguins. During breeding seasons, they repeatedly travel several tens to thousands of kilometers away from their nest to search for food at sea, and precisely come back home.
About such long-distance movements, I am trying to approach
through inter-species comparison of behaviours, morphology, and genomes.
