Informed birds visiting Antzz in Helsinki

Although our work focusses mainly on birds, and the consequences of their information use for others, some of the best examples of how social behaviour evolves are to be found in invertebrates.  From August, I'll be a long-term visitor to the ANTZZ team at the University of Helsinki, led by Prof. Liselotte Sundström.  Lotta is one of the directors of the Centre of Excellence for Biological Interactions (our collaborator Prof Johanna Mappes, in Jyväskylä, is another), and being here offers a really exciting opportunity to learn more about social evolution from the view point of Formica ants.  Vix and Liisa will be visiting regularly from Cambridge, and I'll be visiting them often too.
