Korine C​armi, Adjunct Professor​​
ckorine@bgu.ac.il

Research Interests:

My scientifi​c background is in physiological ecology of animals, a discipline that explores, in an ecological and evolutionary context, the ways in which animals function in response to their natural environments. I work within this discipline to answer questions that are related to conservation ecology and to animal ecology. I have developed an international reputation for my work on bats. I have done fieldwork in several countries and have been invited to several international meetings. I am collaborating with scientists from Israel and abroad.​
