Generally I am interested in how the early rearing environment shapes the behaviour of an animal for its entire life and particularly which environmental factors do have such an effect. In this regard I got the opportunity to do a masterthesis in a project, which investigates the long term effects of early social and predation experience in Neolamprologus pulcher, a cooperatively breeding cichlid.
