Michael Bertram
Behavioural Ecology & Ecotoxicology


I am a behavioural ecologist / ecotoxicologist researching impacts of human-induced environmental change on ecological and evolutionary processes in wildlife. In particular, I am interested in uncovering how exposure to ‘emerging’ forms of chemical pollution can disrupt complex traits and behavioural processes in wild animals. I address these questions using a combination of lab and field approaches in order to uncover how contaminants affect animals across multiple levels of biological organisation, from individuals to populations and communities. Increasingly, I am interested in upscaling environmental realism in behavioural ecotoxicology—e.g. field exposures, multiple stressors, high-resolution acoustic telemetry.
