Elizabeth A Archie

Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Notre Dame. Associate Director of the Amboseli Baboon Research Project in Kenya. Elizabeth Archie received her PhD from Duke University. She was an undergraduate at Bowdoin College.

The goal of our research is to understand the evolutionary costs and benefits of social relationships, especially how these evolutionary consequences pertain to individual health, disease risk, and survival.

Our research follows two main strands:

* How do social organization and behavior influence the spread of infectious organisms, including bacteria and parasites?
* How does an individual’s social context influence their physiology, immune responses, and life span?

Barry W Brook

Barry Brook, a conservation biologist and modeller, is an ARC Australian Laureate Professor and Chair of Environmental Sustainability at the University of Tasmania. Leader of the Dynamics of Eco-evolutionary Patterns (DEEP) research group and the UTAS node of CABAH, Barry is a highly cited scientist, having published three books, over 350 refereed papers, and many popular articles. His awards include the 2006 Australian Academy of Science Fenner Medal, the 2010 Community Science Educator of the Year and 2013 Scopus Researcher of the Year. He focuses on global change biology, ecological dynamics, paleoenvironments, energy systems, and statistical-simulation models.

Anne Kuhn

Anne Kuhn holds a PhD in Environmental Science from the University of Rhode Island, and has expertise in the field of spatial statistics and developing approaches for evaluating the relative risks from chemical and non-chemical stressors on spatially structured populations of wildlife species across. Anne develops and evaluates watershed indicators to reflect and predict aquatic condition in lakes, streams and estuaries. Her current research involves evaluating key intrinsic factors controlling watershed physical processes and connectivity, and quantifying watershed-level stressors (e.g., land use, stable isotopes of nitrogen and carbon, nutrient loads, climate change, etc.) that influence the condition and integrity of water bodies within watersheds.

Previously at Coastal Fisheries Research Group, CCMar, University of the Algarve

D Ross Robertson

I have worked on the sexual biology, ecology, population biology, demography and biogeography of reef-fishes throughout the tropical regions of the world, since 1970. I also have two groups of digital apps (websites plus mobile adaptations to them) on neotropical reef fishes. I have been a staff scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute since 1975.
