Gabriele Warwick (University College London). ‘An ethnographic perspective on agroecology as a conservation strategy amongst rural small-holders in Acre, Brazil’
This study will use ethnographic and participatory research methods to assess the social impacts of agroecology in Acre, a small state in the Brazilian Amazon bordering Peru and Bolivia, to understand its potential as a conservation strategy and as a tool to improve wellbeing.
Tanith Hackney-Huck (Sheffield University). ‘The Impact of Selective Logging on Avian Biodiversity in a Malaysian Rainforest’
Much of Borneo’s tropical rainforest is threatened by selective logging. This project will build a four-year dataset by sampling the understorey bird communities in primary and logged forests using mist-netting. The project hopes to establish how much habitat quality can be maintained and restored in selectively logged areas, and whether protecting selectively logged forest is an effective conservation strategy.
