Research profile

Research interests of Maciej Sykut are focused on biology of cervids. In his bachelor and master thesis he analyzed reproductive process, body weight gain and condition (on the basis of serum creatinine level) of farm fallow deer (Dama dama). In his PhD project he investigates habitat preferences of red deer (Cervus elaphus) in Late Pleistocene and Holocene in central and eastern Europe. His PhD research is based on analyses of stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen contained in collagen extracted from contemporary and fossil bones.
