Biography

My research examines human impacts on the environment, with a particular focus on biodiversity loss and its consequences. I have a particular interest in analysing the biodiversity dynamics of fragmented forest landscapes. I am also researching societal responses to biodiversity loss, including protected areas, ecological restoration and development of the green economy. I have coordinated a number of international, collaborative research projects, principally in Latin America, but also in East and West Africa, Central and SE Asia, and in the UK. I have produced over 150 research publications on conservation science and management, including books on biodiversity loss and conservation, forest ecology and tropical forest resources. I have also supervised more than 30 PhD and MPhil students.

Recent research activities have included analysis of the impacts of ecological restoration on biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services, human impacts on forest biodiversity, and the effectiveness of protected areas in reducing biodiversity loss...
