We study the causes and consequences of animal behaviour. Our focus is largely on the role of individual behavioural variation and environmental variation plays in affecting fitness and disease outcomes for bats and caribou. We use a range of contemporary statistical analyses to test competing hypotheses that span a broad range of ecological scales. The implications for our work are wide-ranging and our goals are to contribute to the development of theory and methods, while also contributing to One Health initiatives and the conservation and management of species at risk.
