Brendan completed his BSc (Honours) in Zoology at the University of Melbourne and his MSc in Biodiversity Conservation and Management at the University of Oxford. His previous research has concentrated on the local adaptation of Drosophila along environmental gradients and the shifting distribution of Saharan plants throughout the African Humid Period. Brendan’s PhD research focuses on i) the way that species biological traits mediate the response of mammal populations to hunting pressure and habitat loss and ii) trade-offs in the cost effectiveness of managing each of these threats and iii) integrating these insights into spatial conservation planning.
