Edge Effects of Anthropogenic Barriers on Protected Mammal Ecosystems
Comparative Risk Assessment of Physical and Metaphorical Fences to Mitigate Human-Wildlife Conflict
PhD Project, Zoology Dep. Environmental Sciences at University of Basel in Cooperation with the Animal Demography Unit at University of Cape Town UCT
The proposed research project will dramatically improve the scarce knowledge of the relationship of fences and other human-made barriers and mammalian wildlife demography by comparatively assessing the permeability of these structures using photographic camera traps in South African and central European areas of increased conservation value.
