Field work
We suspect that bird reproductive success and community composition may be negatively affected by recreational use of natural areas. But, how do we quantify recreational use?
In an ideal world, conservation decisions are made based on the best scientific knowledge available. How do these two worlds, with different expectations and different time scales work together?
Novel ecosystems, ecosystems with strong human influence are an important new challenge for ecology. Will these ecosystems increase in number in the future? Where?
