Research questions

Ulrike Kubetzki's main research focus lies in the field of seabird ecology.
Central research questions are:

  • How do seabirds function as bio-indicators for the state and quality of marine habitats?
  • What effects do anthropogenic influences in the area of conflict between marine nature conservation and marine use have on seabirds and coastal birds?
  • How can the distribution and habitat use of seabirds be analysed?
    Telemetric studies (data loggers) are the main tools used here.
