Biologisches Kolloquium

Das Biologische Kolloquium ist eine gemeinsame Veranstaltung der biologischen Institute der Universität Bonn und des Forschungsmuseum Koenig.

Hier werden Kollegen aus dem In- und Ausland zu wissenschaftlichen Vorträgen eingeladen um über ihre neuesten Forschungsergebnisse zu Evolution, Biodiversität, Verhalten, Genetik und anderer biologischer Bereiche zu berichten.

Die Veranstaltungen finden jeweils montags um 17:15 Uhr im Großen Hörsaal des Instituts für Zoologie, Poppelsdorfer Schloss, statt.

Organisatoren
Prof. Dr. G. von der Emde (Universität Bonn)
Prof. Heike Wägele (ZFMK)

Chemical communication is the evolutionary oldest communication system in the animal kingdom. In amphibians, chemical signaling is well documented in caudates, but because anurans spend a lot of energy in acoustic signaling, chemical communication has received much less attention in this order. However, poison frogs for example use chemical communication during parental care behaviours: They transport their tadpoles to very small water bodies and chemically recognize and avoid cannibalistic tadpoles.

If only those behaviours evolve that increase the actor’s own survival and reproductive success, then it might come as a surprise that cooperative behaviours, i.e. providing benefits to others, are a widespread phenomenon. Many animals cooperate even with unrelated individuals in various contexts, like providing food or allogrooming. One possibility to explain the evolution of such apparently altruistic behaviour is reciprocity. In reciprocal cooperative interactions, individuals help those partners that have been previously cooperative and therefore exchange favours repeatedly.

Cognitive research on non-human animals has been, and will be, a flourishing field but surprisingly few studies have been conducted on farm animals. As a detailed understanding of the perceptive and cognitive abilities of non-human animals is necessary to understand their normal behavioural expressions and to avoid exposing them to mental distress, an approach towards the cognitive capacities of farm animals is crucial for progress in animal welfare related topics.

Pollination strategies of European orchidsOrchids display a wide variety of strategies for attracting insects that can act as pollen vector. During evolution the morphology of the orchid flower was adapted in various ways in order to match the preferences of the visiting insects. This resulted in different pollination strategies, from reward to deception and from allogamous to autogamous pollination.In this lecture the morphology of the orchid flower is discussed, followed by many examples showing the various relationships between orchid and pollinator.
