Dr Xyomara Carretero-Pinzon

Xyomara's doctorate thesis highlighted how conservation strategies in fragmented landscapes affects the occupancy, abundance and in more detail the group density, size and composition of the primate species studied, depending on the scale at which conservation actions are taken by using a group of primate species in the Colombian Llanos. This thesi ...

Sean uses spatially explicit models of spread to explore how localised initial plant populations become large, widespread, invasive populations. He investigates the phenomenon of plant spread on both homogeneous and heterogeneous landscapes. Sean is also interested in complex dynamic landscapes where the weed and the landscape interact with each ot ...
