I pursue research into magnetoreception of birds and other vertebrates. My own experimental work concerns mainly behavioural experiments in migratory birds, but I collaborate a lot with biophysicists, neurobiologists and electophysiologists in order to study signal reception and transduction from stationary magnetic field. The main result is that we have shown the use of geomagnetic cues by birds for positioning during long-distance movements (magnetic map). Currently I am involved into research on the mechanisms of the magnetic compass in birds and other vertebrates
