The Seychelles Warbler Project is a group of evolutionary biologists who study the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler. Our current research focuses on the following topics:
- Evolution of cooperative breeding
- Personality and fitness
- Consequences of diversity at immune loci
- Genomics of translocated populations
- Conservation biology
The Seychelles warbler is a small passerine endemic to the Seychelles islands. The oldest population of this rare bird has been studied on Cousin Island since 1981, with intensive monitoring since 1986. In 1988, 1990, 2004 and 2011 new populations were established on the islands of Aride, Cousine, Denis and Fregate respectively, making our project a conservation success.
