About the Lab

The Conservation Ecology Laboratory is primarily concerned with biological processes affecting the diversity, functioning and ecology of Southeast Asian forest fauna and their conservation. We work on various taxa, including amphibians, molluscs, bees, butterflies and birds. We conduct field studies in tropical rainforests throughout the region. Through our research, we aim to provide critical scientific data for the effective conservation of species and their natural habitats in Southeast Asia.

Research Areas

  • Effects of habitat disturbance and forest fragmentation on faunal communities
  • Hidden diversity in 'cryptic' Southeast Asian species
  • Key ecosystem functions and services provided by biodiversity
  • Biological correlates of extinction risk
  • Protected areas
  • Avian phenology, behaviour and habitat requirements
  • Management of invasive bird species
