This team focused on the knowledge of the ecology of waterbirds. The migration, the various strategies of wintering and reproduction of waterbirds as well as their geographical variation constitute a central concern of this team.

An understanding of the dynamics of the populations of waterbirds and the role played by Algerian wetlands is a key objective. The diet,behavior as well as the identification of key variables which can influence population dynamics is a key objective



Scientific foundations of this team:


  •  -Ecology of the reproduction of waterbirds
  • -Distribution, phenology and ecology of the reproduction of amphibians.
  • - Ringing program and study of the dispersal of waterbirds
  •  -Study of the dynamics of the populations of the aquatic vertebrates (birds and      amphibians)
  • -Diet 
  • -Study of the time budget of various species of waterbirds
