Dipl. Biol. Björn Müller


I've finished my Diploma thesis "Family relationships in the hunting bag of wild boar, Sus scrofa" in February 2011 at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology and Ecology. Genetic relatedness revealed by microsatellite genotyping of two years hunting bag of a wild boar population in Rhineland-Palatinate was analyzed. The population size was estimated and the influence of hunting activities on the population have been discussed.

My doctoral theses will deal with further questions of wild boar reproductive behaviour and reproductive success of different age classes in cooperation with the Institute of Wildlife Research at the School of Veterinary Medicine (Hannover, Lower Saxony).

I'm currently working for my Diploma thesis in the wild boar management project of the Institute of Wildlife Research in the administrative districts of Osterholz and Rotenburg (Wümme) in Lower Saxony. Rapidly growing population sizes and further radiation of wild boar in agricultural areas demands mandatory research of alternative hunting and management strategies.

My work includes camera trapping, telemetry and video analyses of wild boar  behaviour to estimate seasonal population size and response towards hunting pressure.

Working for my Diploma thesis in the wild boar management project of the Institute of Wildlife Research in the administrative districts of Osterholz and Rotenburg (Wümme) in Lower Saxony, my primary questions are focused on dispersal, home-range size and seasonal use of different habitat types of distinct wild boar sounders. Trapping, marking and telemetry of radio-tagged wild boars during night and daytime is my main tool to answer these questions.
