Ecology and Ecosystems Seminar Series
Dr David Edwards (University of Sheffield) will be giving a seminar in late January. Details to follow.
Oil Palm Adaptive Landscapes, a 6-yr research program spanning Indonesia, Cameroon and Colombia, is funded by SNF/SDC. Interdisciplinary & participatory, biodiversity & ecosystem services, livelihoods, policy, and development - we have it all! Starting in 2015, and recruiting soon.
