Sapir Nir, Prof.

Prof. Nir Sapir is a faculty member in the Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology and head of the Animal Flight lab. His group deals with ecological, biomechanical, physiological and behavioral aspects of animal flight, primarily of birds.

Using a variety of research methods, including radio, GPS and geolocation telemetry, radar technology, remote sensing and field measurements, his research group studies the causes, mechanisms, patterns and consequences of animal flight. Several applied aspects of our work include the mitigation of collisions between low-flying aircrafts and migrating birds, ecosystem services of aerial insectivores and the conservation of birds in Israel.
