I have studied Zoology at the University of Innsbruck and am now writing my MSc thesis at the Institute of Ecology. It is about the not so well-known ant species Tetramorium alpestre and how their behaviour is changing when removed from their nest. I am working on behavioural tests, which were made at intervals of several days, and analyse the data.

Research topics

  • Alpine endemism
  • Behaviour
  • Social organisation

Working title MSc thesis

Do ants of the species Tetramorium alpestre change their behaviour after removing them from their nest?
