Humans, Animals and Environment
Our group provides a forum for multi-, inter- and trans-disciplinary research into relationships between humans, animals and their environments.
Areas of particular expertise include:
- changing land use and impacts on wildlife behaviour and ecology
- evolutionary ecology
- people-wildlife interactions
- primate conservation
- conservation social science.
Group members have extensive experience of fieldwork across Africa (West, East and South), Madagascar, Southeast Asia and the UK.
Research carried out by members of the HAE group has significant impact on biodiversity conservation and conservation conflicts beyond academia.
Group members’ research informs conservation policy and practice directly through inclusion in International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Guidelines documents and policy statements, training materials and training events for wildlife agency staff.
Members of the group also make a significant contribution to conservation policy and action through their individual work with various conservation and development NGOs, consultancies and local/national/international government departments, and through their public engagement and knowledge exchange activities, locally, nationally and internationally.
