Restoring biodiversity – the key to preventing the next pandemic?

Institute Seminar by Lucinda Kirkpatrick
  • Datum: 09.07.2024
  • Uhrzeit: 10:30 - 11:30
  • Vortragende(r): Lucinda Kirkpatrick
  • I carried out my PhD at the University of Stirling investigating biodiversity differences and animal behaviour in response to management decisions in commercial coniferous plantations in the UK. While this focussed primarily on bat species, for my post doc and fellowship (FWO), I changed country, study species and study location to investigate how individual and population level drivers influence disease transmission in the multimammate mouse in Tanzania based at the EVECO group at the University of Antwerp, under Prof. Herwig Leirs. I have now joined Bangor University in North Wales as Lecturer in Wildlife Ecology, alongside co-leading a large consortium of partners to investigate how restoration influences biodiversity recovery, individual behaviour and mechanisms of spillover risk. This project, funded by Horizon EU, has just started and will run for four years and is a bringing together of the landscape scale drivers of biodiversity I investigated with my PhD and the drivers and mechanisms of spillover risk which underpinned my post doctoral and fellowship work. In addition, in order to investigate some of these key mechanisms of spillover risk, I collaborated with colleagues in Engineering in UAntwerp to develop miniaturised proximity loggers, which we launched into a spin off company, IoSA BV, focussed on low power solutions to investigating key components of animal behaviour.

There is clear and growing evidence that anthropogenic impacts on our environment are impacting our quality of life. Spillovers of zoonotic diseases occur more frequently in degraded landscapes where contact between humans and wildlife increase. Restoration has been flagged as a key tool in our ... [mehr]

  • Vortragende(r): Brian Cusack, Science Craft
  • Who is you trainer: Dr. Brian Cusack comes from Cork, Ireland and received his Ph.D. in Genetics from Trinity College, Dublin in 2007. During his Ph.D. Brian received the kind of mentoring that he continues to consider as the gold-standard for graduate students. After completing his first postdoc at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, Brian conducted post-doctoral research in evolutionary genomics at the Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin.

Peer Review is the foundation of the scientific method, providing quality control for published research findings. Yet more than 95% of researchers receive no training in this essential skill, forcing them to learn, by trial and error, how to engage in peer review as authors and reviewers. Science ... [mehr]

Fate of the Caribou: Movements, Memory and Coproduction of Knowledge

Institute Seminar by Eliezer Gurarie
  • Datum: 25.06.2024
  • Uhrzeit: 10:30 - 11:30
  • Vortragende(r): Eliezer Gurarie
  • Dr. Elie Gurarie is a professor of wildlife ecology at the State University of New York - College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, New York, USA. He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Washington in Seattle and has worked at the Universities of Finland, Maryland and Wisconsin, with a breadth of field experience in various mostly Arctic and sub-Arctic marine and terrestrial systems. He studies, broadly, the mechanisms by which animals navigate and thrive (or fail to thrive) in dynamic and complex environments. He combines spatial and movement ecology with population and community ecology, developing novel statistical and methodological tools and occasional theory, with an eye both on fundamental questions in ecology and highly applied problems in conservation.
