Role: CCI Council, University of Cambridge


I hold the Miriam Rothschild Chair of Conservation Biology in the Department of Zoology.  My research interests largely involve predicting the consequences of environmental change. I have written The Conservation Handbook and From Individual Behaviour to Population Biology and have edited Managing Habitats for Conservation, Ecological Census Techniques, Behaviour and Conservation, Conservation Science and Action and Bird Ecology and Conservation: a Handbook of Techniques. I am currently heavily involved in exploring a range of ways of integrating conservation science and policy especially through the development of evidence-based conservation.
