Social mitigation of infection risk in animal societies

Institute Seminar by Matthew Silk
  • Datum: 09.04.2024
  • Uhrzeit: 10:30 - 11:30
  • Vortragende(r): Matthew Silk
  • I did my PhD and 2 post-doc contracts at the University of Exeter’s Centre for Ecology and Conservation and Environment and Sustainability Institute in Cornwall, UK. My PhD used social network methods to understand the social structure of a migratory geese. My post-docs then applied these skills at the interface of social behaviour, infectious disease and population ecology. I continued these research themes through a short post-doc with Nina Fefferman and at the University of Tennessee and a MSCA fellowship at CEFE in Montpellier. I have now just started as a Royal Society research fellow at the University of Edinburgh, with my research focused on the role of social networks in longer-term infectious disease dynamics.

Infectious disease risk can represent a key cost of social interactions. Therefore, quantifying how individuals mitigate this risk, while maximising social benefits can help us understand how individual social behaviour evolves and scales up to group and population-level social structure and ...

Conflict, collars, and fences: Managing landscapes for the benefit of people and wildlife in the Serengeti, Tanzania

Institute Seminar by Kristen Snyder
  • Datum: 21.05.2024
  • Uhrzeit: 10:30 - 11:30
  • Vortragende(r): Kristen Snyder
  • I completed my PhD at the University of California – Davis, where my work focused on human-wildlife conflict and conservation planning. I joined the Grumeti Fund in 2015 while completing my degree and have subsequently worked with the organization in varying capacities as a postdoctoral fellow, Head Scientist, and Scientific Advisor (current). In 2019 I led the development and launch of our applied research program and facility, Research and Innovation for the Serengeti Ecosystem (RISE, see 'further information'). I am an affiliated scientist with the Wittemyer Lab at Colorado State University and Chief Scientist at Natural Capital. Human-wildlife conflict, coexistence, and linking science with conservation management are common themes in my work, which I approach from an interdisciplinary perspective and using a variety of tools, including household surveys, camera traps, wildlife GPS collars, and remote sensing.

In rural communities, Human-Wildlife Conflict (HWC) can pose a serious threat to household food security, safety, and livelihoods, and in turn, undermine conservation efforts. Managing HWC has become an increasingly important component of managing wildlife populations and protected areas. The ... [mehr]
