Tanzania

Many wild African mammals survive poorly outside protected areas due to several factors like habitat modification, hunting and livestock feeding. So far, competition due to dietary and range overlap, quality and quantity of forage between livestock and wild ungulates has been reported by several authors.

Zimbabwe

This study aims to understand the status, breeding ecology and threats to White-headed and Lappet-faced Vultures in Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe. I propose to map nest sites, study nesting success, and determine nest site and habitat characteristics of the two species. I will also examine the population structure of White-headed Vultures as age plays a vital role in breeding success.

Tanzania

Human co-existence with elephants present a significant conservation challenge and priority in Tanzania, where they are threatened by poaching and human-elephant conflict crisis. Elephants can have negative impacts on people and livelihoods, especially in communities that share spaces and resources with them.

Since the effects of climate change on populations of the most diverse species is real, quantifying the magnitude of these effects on species is vital. Particularly, for anurans that are organisms highly vulnerable to environmental changes such impacts can be dramatic leading to the massive extinction of species (many of which are still unknown).

Lucy Perera-Romero

Guatemala

The Maya Biosphere Reserve is (MBR) located in northern Guatemala covering an area of 2.1 million hectares. My study area comprises areas with well-preserved forest cover but with a gradient of protection underneath it. I will be working in Uaxactun Forest Concession, Mirador-Rio Azul National Park and Dos Lagunas Wildlife preserve.

Mexico

Study I (Invasive Fern Experiment): Previously collected data shows that plant recruitment in our plots is hampered by the growth of an invasive fern species, Nephrolepis brownii. To design an eradication plan, we first need more information on how the fern interferes with recruitment (is it above- or below-ground competition, or both?).

Ghana

The land-snail fauna of Ghana and surrounding countries is poorly known. There were no systematic assessments of land snails in Ghana so far. Approximately 40 species of land snails have been described or reported from Ghana (de Winter, pers. comm.).

Serbia

The Danube river extensive flooded areas in Serbia are recognised as sites of high conservation value and importance at the national and international level. However, due to time and cost consuming of fieldwork, freshwater habitats in these wetlands lack the routine monitoring program.

Mexico

Marine mammals are one of the most important species in the marine ecosystems. Bahia de los Angeles (BLA) and San Luis Gonzaga (SLG), located in the Gulf of California (GC) are remote locations that have been recognized as two of the most important marine areas regarding biodiversity conservation in Mexico. However, little is known about population sizes and distribution of the area’s cetaceans.
