Prof. Dr. Jaboury Ghazoul

JG2


Jaboury Ghazoul is a plant ecologist working mostly in the tropics on plant reproductive ecology. He has a hard time with his children.

Curriculum Vitae

Jaboury Ghazoul received his PhD from the University of St Andrews, Scotland, in evolutionary ecology of social behaviour of sphecid wasps under the supervision of Prof. Pat Willmer.

Thereafter he spent a year in Vietnam (1993-1994) leading biodiversity survey work with the Vietnamese Ministry of Forestry. He returned to London to work at the Natural History Museum (1995-1998) from where he ran a CIFOR research project addressing the impacts of logging on dipterocarp tree reproduction in Thailand.

He was appointed Lecturer in Tropical Forest Ecology at Imperial College London in 1998 and Senior Lecturer in 2003. At Imperial he developed both basic and applied research in ecology and environment at locations throughout the tropics.

He was appointed as Professor of Ecosystem Management at ETH Zurich in October 2005.

Jaboury has been Editor-in-Chief of the journal Biotropica from 2006 to 2013, and a member of the Executive Board of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) for the same duration. His main research interests are pollination ecology and plant reproduction, ecosystem services in agroforestry systems and, more generally, conservation ecology of tropical trees in landscape mosaics. His wider interests include geology, marine biology, political history, walking aimlessly in the Scottish Highlands and, above all, family.
