About the Project
In recent years there has been a step change in our understanding of how so many species persist in hyperdiverse systems such as tropical forests. There is has been accumulation of data and models for these systems and a growing appreciation of the processes that drive diversity in natural systems. However, most of this work has been undertaken in pristine forests, with less in disturbed, fragmented or logged ones. In this project the impacts of human disturbance on the mechanisms of diversity-enhancement will be examined. The approach taken could be experimental and be based on field trials, or could be theoretical, or a combination of the two. We provide training in skills such as experimental design, statistics and modelling.
