Welcome * Bienvenidos * Chào mung

Research questions that we investigate in the Huyvaert lab group are typically about population- or individual-level problems in ecology. Our primary research focus is in wildlife disease ecology and we apply both field and laboratory techniques to questions about pathogens and parasites that affect host populations of wild animals, especially birds.

In addition to research in disease ecology, we have projects that focus on the behavioral ecology and conservation of threatened and endangered species, particularly seabirds.

The group has research projects in field sites both close to home - Colorado, Nebraska, California - and far afield - Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and northern Vietnam - and we carry out some experimental projects almost entirely in the laboratory.
