About the Project
We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds. Our approach focuses on data-driven modelling and statistical methods.
In recent projects we have used UAVs (drones) to map populations of pests, and this is an area in which we have expertise in the aquistiton and analysis of data. This approach has been used in a range of contexts to improve management and the data from these systems has been combined with advanced image analysis techniques. We provide training in skills such as experimental design, statistics and modelling.
