Animal behaviour

Schooling fish

Work being done under this theme cuts across the core themes of the Centre's research. As part of the Animal Behaviour theme, EICC researchers are using fish as model animals to explore ideas about learning and information use, sociality and collective behaviour. This research, led by A/Prof Ashley Ward, links the EICC to other research centres in the University such as the Centre for Mathematical Biology in addition to leading researchers in Europe and the USA.
