Bird and mammal monitoring                          Ecological interactions and relations             Population dynamics                               Endangered species conservation

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests involve and evolve around the monitoring of wildlife populations (e.g. distance sampling surveys), dietary and spatial ecology, avian anatomy, physiology and condition,  ecological interactions between species groups (e.g. mammals and birds),  interactions in relation to population dynamics (e.g. host-parasite, predator-prey, herbivore-food, weather, climate), island bio-geography some of which are yet to be explored. I see great purpose in long-term research.

Experience

SPECIES

I feel drawn to particular groups of species (though this is not exclusive and I haven't necessarily done scientific research on all of them): 

Owls (Strigiformes)  Falcons (Falconidae)  Kites (Milvus, Buteo)  Ptarmigan (Lagopus)  Herons (Ardeo)  Cranes (Gruidae)    l    Hares (Leporidae)  certain Antilopes and Gazelles  Deer (Cervidae)  Hyenas (Hyanidae)    l    Butterflies (Lepidoptera)  Damselflies (Zygoptera)
