New collaborative research center: The individual and its ecological niche
(Bielefeld University) A new Transregio Collaborative Research Centre (CRC/TRR) with the abbreviated name 'NC3' will link the sub-disciplines of behavioural biology, ecology, and evolutionary biology. Its goal is to elucidate how animals succeed by individually adapting to their environment and thereby finding and exploiting their individualised ecological niche. The German Research Foundation (DFG) has now approved funding for CRC/TRR 212. Starting in January 2018, it will be supporting this new direction in research with a total of roughly 8.5 million Euros.
