Active Projects

Our projects range from studying lion:human interactions in East Africa (case study landscape: Ruaha, Tanzania) using games for conservation and spatially explicit modelling, to analysing elpehant:crop conflict in human-modified landscapes (case study landscape: Kilombero Valley, Tanzania) to measuring natural capital benefits to crop health, biodiversity and human well-being in tropical human-modified landscapes (case study landscape: Kilombero Valley, Tanzania) and biodiversity response to infrastructure  (case study landscapes: Brunei’s rainforests and Gabon’s logged forests).
