Dr Freydis Vigfusdottir

I am an ecologist and my research interests lie in the field of spatial and trophic ecology of animals. Current research is focused on foraging ecology of marine animals and influences of marine resource limitations on arctic and subarctic ecosystems. My research also includes studies on stress associated with disturbance and risk behaviours of long-distance migratory animals.
