Conservation Ecology - CE
Ecology of Tropical and Mediterranean Bats and Birds

Christoph Friedrich Johannes Meyer

External Collaborator

I received a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Ulm (Germany) in 2007 and I am currently leading the Tropical Conservation Ecology research group of cE3c. My research focuses on studying vertebrate responses to habitat fragmentation and land-use change. For many years I have been involved in habitat fragmentation research in the tropics, using mostly bats as model group.

My current research is driven by three overarching objectives: (i) assess how tropical vertebrates are affected by land-use change and anthropogenic habitat conversion and elucidate the factors that determine species persistence in human-modified tropical landscapes, (ii) determine how species responses to environmental changes can be effectively monitored for impact mitigation, (iii) contribute to our understanding about how tropical agricultural landscapes should be managed to maximize biodiversity conservation while enhancing food security sustainably in developing countries.

NOTE: In November 2015 I will start a new position as Lecturer in Global Ecology & Conservation in the University of Salford, Manchester (U.K.), becoming external Collaborator of cE3c.
