Our work ranges from defining conservation priorities of individual endangered species to investigating the impacts of global change on entire habitats. Within the field of conservation ecology our research methods include the use of remote sensing to identify the rates and causes of deforestation, the development of innovative wildlife survey and monitoring techniques and development of new sound-based methods to monitor 'health' of tropical forests.

We currently work in Papua New Guinea and in South America. In the lowlands of Ecuador we are focusing on the conservation of the critically endangered species such as the brown-headed spider monkey (Ateles fusciceps fusciceps).
