The impact of anthropogenic activities on the biological success of a native species: the case of the great tit (Parus major)

StressChron Framework:

Project code 110
Acronym CORTMEES
Role Partner
Research area Contributing to a more sustainable and animal welfare minded food production
Research topic Improving our understanding of the impact of anthropogenic activities on the health status of vertebrates in the wild
Vertebrate Bird
Species Great tit (Parus major)

Abstract:

The research goal is to gain insight in the anthropogenic effect of urbanization on great tit (Parus major). While urbanization exposes individuals to novel challenges, urban areas may also constitute stable environments in which seasonal fluctuations are buffered. Here we aimed to disentangle how native species react to urban environments.
