RESEARCH VISIT TO THE INSTITUTE OF WILDLIFE ECOLOGY IN VIENNA

David presenting to the Vienna group

Arctic chronobiology and physiology group members David Hazlerigg and Shona Wood visited the institute of wildlife ecology in Vienna. This group shares many interests with ACP, focusing on seasonal physiology, thermoregulation and hibernation; they approach these areas from an ecological angle but with a strong grounding in physiology.

David was invited by Sylvain Giroud to present his data published in PNAS on the programming of calendar time before birth, which sets subsequent trajectories for growth and reproduction in small mammals. Sylvain has particular interests in the time of year of birth and the observed effects in the wild on winter survival, especially with regard to fattening and hibernation in dormice. The seminar was well received by all, leading to a good discussion bridging, ecology, physiology and mechanistic biology.

The Vienna group has excellent outdoor enclosures for dormice, owls, multiple bird species and red deer. Sylvain also…
