I'll be in Brisbane for two weeks from the 15th, and in addition to working with Shaun and attending the beers on the ground-formerly-known-as-the-roof, I'd be very happy to chat more about some of my favourite scientific topics: invasive species, climate-driven range-shifts, data / theory integration. If there is a chance for me to give a talk I'd be happy to, I just got new results that I'm hoping to present at the American ESA this summer, about bird range shifts in Sweden. I can also talk more or less informally about the work done at CEC at Lund University - great interdisciplinary environment.

Tim McClanahan is a Senior Conservation Zoologist at the Wildlife Conservation Society, where he has worked for the past 15 years. He is interested in the interdisciplinary field of ecology, fisheries and the sustainable management of coral reefs, but also enjoys crossing sub-disciplines in order to solve broader conservation science issues.

I'll be there Sept 14-Dec 15, mostly in Brisbane, but with trips planned to Perth and probably Adelaide and Melbourne for the research. I'm collaborating with Kerrie Wilson at U Queensland and  Marit Kragt at U Western Australia. This is a pilot study to elicit preferences for ecosystem services, and perceptions of ES value, among different groups more or less concerned with ecological restoration. The groups are scientists/managers, policymakers, and the general public.  Questions include: How does your level of knowledge influence your perception of value? How are the groups different in terms of their preferences for kinds of services (provisioning, regulating, cultural, etc.)? How does preference for services vary in different regions of Australia where different environmenta ...

I have been thinking on possible activities during my one-month visit to the UQ. These are initial interests to begin discussing on these issues but I am open to any ideas you may have for collaboration. The activities I am interested in include: -          To visit study areas (with the focus on: habitats, species, sampling design, field methods), especially to conservation and production forests -          To know the type of collaboration you, as researchers, have with land managers and policy makers -          To know the tools you use for conservation decision and planning -          To discuss on common top ...

Biological invasions are considered as one of the five most important direct drivers of biodiversity loss. Alien species may become invasive and displace native species, cause the loss of native genotypes, modify habitats, change community structure, affect food-web properties and ecosystem processes, impede the provision of ecosystem services, impact human health, and cause substanial economic losses. While incorporation of actions to mitigate invasive species have been proposed in terrestrial conservation planning, this not the case for the marine realm. Currently the Mediterranean Sea is the most impacted sea int he world hosting more than 900 alien species. The predominant pathway is the Canal of Suez which acts as a corridor for the movement of thermophilic species of Indo-Pacific ori ...

I am a PhD student in the BioEcon lab at NUS and my main research interests are related to how economics, international trade and agriculture influence land use decisions and patterns of land use change in the tropics. I am currently working on projects related to protected area effectiveness, oil palm in Borneo, commodity chain drivers of deforestation and wildlife trade. In Australia I hope to learn more about using MARXAN for protected area selection, and its underlying mechanics. I would like to incorporate these things into my own research regarding protected area downgrading, downsizing and degazettement (PADDD). I think it would be a great opportunity to expand my own knowledge, discuss ideas and learn new techniques that will help me develop as a researcher. Dates of visit: 16 ...
