BII expert in: Large carnivores

My research focus is on applied ecology with the aim of conserving ecosystems. My primary focus is on large herbivores, which are often understudied in favour of charismatic megafauna but form a vital part of every ecosystem.

Changing land use away from natural, protected areas can disrupt migrations and prevent connectivity between wildlife populations. Management interventions in natural areas without due consideration of potential consequences can damage ecosystem functioning, such as the provision of artificial water in seasonally dry areas.
