Introduction to Behavioural and Evolutionary Ecology

Research

Recently I have been assessing the personality structure of individual elephants via behavioural ratings done by experienced observers, the mahouts (elephant riders). I am interested in the interplay of the elephants’ personality differences, individual quality, their social organization (especially allomothering) and ultimately their life prospects.
