Conservation and ecology of Pacific salmon with an emphasis on their ecosystems, including connections between marine, freshwater and terrestrail habitats. - biology of extinction risk, using large-scale comparative analyses of marine and freshwater fish species to udnerstand how life histories interact with particular kinds of threats to determine population responses, with an emphaiss on fisheries.

Dr. Nciholson is working on decision-making for conservation and natural resource management. My research interests are broad, and include conservation planning, scenario modelling for biodiversity indicators, models of social-ecological systems, developing criteria for the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems, and making decisions under uncertainty.

Kerstin Jantke

My interests cover interdisciplinary research on ecosystems and protected areas at the interfaces of conservation biology, land economics and climate change. More specifically, I am working on the application of systematic conservation planning methods to European conservation problems, on the implementation of economic concepts into conservation planning as well as on simultaneous planning for biodiversity conservation and mitigation of climate change.

I am a PhD student at the University of Sheffield, UK, with a broad range of research interests, all with the general theme of extinction. Whilst my PhD thesis has focused on understanding the extinction of populations, and how climatic change might alter the timing of such events, I am also currently working on projects in a variety of other fields including: community assembly dynamics, biodiversity patterns, predicting future extinction events, social interest in conservation issues, parasites, and synthesizing theory and empirical studies. I have been privileged enough to work with people from a diverse set of backgrounds, from theoretical ecologists to conservation biologists, with current collaborators in nine institutes in four countries. I am currently based at the University of Sh ...

Joao will be working with Dr. Carissa Klein in order to develop collaborative networks while working on a workplan entitled Systematic Conservation Planning in the Abrolhos Bank, Brazil. During Joao's time at UQ he will be working toward development of a conservation prioritization exercise that will help the ongoing process of selection of new marine protected ares in the study area, as well as to compare different spatial planning approaches and algorithms.
