Effects of temperature on invertebrate movement (master or bachelor thesis)

How do species respond to global warming? In this research project, we are aiming to understand how the movement of invertebrate species will change under warmer conditions. In the laboratory, the movement of invertebrate individuals will be tracked by automated camera systems under different temperatures. The resulting movement data can be analyzed not only for the trajectories of movement that the animals followed but also for higher level movement parameters such as the average of maximum speed. After statistical analyses, the relationships between movement and temperature can be used for a predictive understanding how animals will respond to global warming.
