Working Group 2: Physiology, Behaviour and Distribution

Key Scientific Questions

  •  To what extent do spatial dynamics result from proximate cues and to what extent is spatial dynamics independent of local environmental cues?
  •  How does school size and fidelity vary in relation to environmental variability and climate change?
  •  What determines the time and place of reproductive and feeding-related behaviour?
  •  How do anthropogenic forces such as fishing interact with environmental impacts on distribution and population structure?
