Nora has just had a paper published on how blue tits change aspects of their mobbing behaviour (not vocalizations) in response to changes in predator behaviour. Her paper was published in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology and is available here. Well done Nora!
Nora’s paper on how British tit species encode predator threat into their mobbing calls has been published in Animal Behaviour and is available online here.
Nora Carlson is a PhD student working in both the Templeton and Healy labs at St Andrews. She is interested in the content and function of mobbing alarm calls given by various tit species in the presence of different predators such as the buzzard below.
