The Core Team

WP_20140719_002Marion: I am interested in predicting the future of biodiversity and ecosystem services in human-modified tropical landscapes. I use biodiversity data and biophysical structure data collected in the field and remotely sensed data from high pixel resolution sensor data to coarse-pixel resolution data and earth observation products. Most of my own fieldwork is happening in East Africa, South Africa and Borneo.

PhilPhil: My research focuses on species distributions, patterns of endemism, ecosystem service modelling, and how these interact with vegetation structure, land/resource use and climate change, particularly in Africa. I have been measuring biophysical structure in East Africa since 2012 and maintain the East African subset of the database.
