Our research focuses on key medium-sized herbivores such as zebra (Equus quagga), buffalo (Syncerus caffer), wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus), tsessebe (Damaliscus lunatus lunatus) and impala (Aepyceros melampus). These species are often over looked by researchers, yet account for much of the wildlife biomass in Botswana.
Our projects typically take a community ecology, rather than a single species approach. We are particularly interested in how animals use their environment, and how changes to that environment will affect them.
We are always open to post-graduate students wishing to develop proposals that fit in with our primary focus.
