Semester of Instruction
Objectives and Content
The subjects are the genetic basis of fish behaviour, motivation and ontogeny, different reactions to stimulation, and the most important sense organs. Special emphasis will be put on the behavioural ecology of foraging, reproduction and schooling, in particular differences in behaviour between populations and individuals. Selected articles and monographs will be discussed in seminars.
The course aims to provide students with increased knowledge about the organisation and function of fish behaviour and how it can be quantified and analysed.
