Mr Gerard Ryan

Conservation is failing to mitigate the global degradation and destruction of biodiversity. Gerard wants to know how we - the conservation community - can increase the impact of our actions. He is investigating a series of case studies that aim to understand measuring the impact of and optimizing conservation actions. These case-studies span t ...

Ms Els Van Burm

Environmental managers often deal with uncertainty while making decisions. This uncertainty can be reduced by allocating resources towards learning about the system through monitoring. Gaining more information through monitoring does not necessarily contribute to better decision making though. In some cases, allocating resources towards monitoring ...

Dr John Weiss

One of the issues incursion managers face is determining when and where a pest outbreak may occur. John's PhD investigated the use of satellite imaging to determine the suitability and susceptibility of vegetation ('greenness') and to see if we could correlate this with historic presence and abundance of pests. John is a senior research scientist ...
