MMVW03 - Measures and Representations of Interactions

Perception—the acquisition and interpretation of information through sensory mechanisms—is critical to how animals interact with and respond to their worlds. From a mathematical perspective, perception is both interesting and challenging because it is fundamentally non-local in character.   From an empirical perspective, animal tracking data is providing unprecedented opportunities for investigating the linkages among perception, behavior, and ecology over large spatial scales.   I will share results from theoretical and empirical investigations of perception, focusing on context-dependent changes in behavior. Along the way, I will touch on the evolution of perception, the importance of perception for successful foraging, and the ways in which perception can shape ecological interactions.
