EURODEER goes to Harvard Museum

cagnacci_hmOn 13th April 2016, EURODEER will be presented at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Cambridge, MA USA, in the lecture "Mammals on the Move" by Francesca Cagnacci. Here the abstract:

Mammals move in their environments to use resources, find shelter, escape from predators, compete, interact, and reproduce. Thanks to new technologies, scientists can now study the movement strategies of animals, which are rarely random. Based on her studies tracking large terrestrial mammals across latitudinal and altitudinal gradients in Europe, Francesca Cagnacci will discuss why animal movement patterns are important both for understanding the impact of climate change on ecosystems and for developing sound conservation strategies.
