Animal behaviour, personality and cognition - Lovlie Group

Welcome to the Løvlie group!

We are interested in understanding variation in behaviour, and most of our research focuses on causes and consequences of animal personality. This includes links to sexual selection, parasite infection and animal cognition. We mainly (but not only) use the red junglefowl as our model species.
