WE ARE THE VERTEBRATE ZOOLOGY UNIT
We are a group of researchers interested in morphology, genetics, ecology, phylogenetics and systematics of vertebrates. We study variation in the morphological and molecular features in relation to phylogeny and taxonomy. We are keen on disentangling activity patterns, behavioral mechanisms, population ecology and synecology alongside the long-term monitoring of changes in the population abundance and species composition. Our Unit organizes lectures, courses, hands-on practicals, field excursions and expeditions as part of the zoological curriculum for BSc., MSc. and Ph.D. studies.
