UNDERSTANDING LOCUSTS

In a joint effort of the centre for the advanced study of collective behaviour and the Max Planck for animal behaviour we combine expertise to advance the understanding of locust swarms. Why and how do locust swarm? Where are they headed and how? Combining field observations, lab experiments, advanced automated tracking and behavioural characterisation are combined with neurophysiological recordings and pharmacological manipulations

Will they still know where to head after Inga's field manipulations?
