EU-DREAM Project, Hwange & Binga Districts. Conservation networks in Human-dominated landscapes: Restoring a meta-population of Loxodonta africana. The project explores the potential for population genetics and GIS techniques to delineate wildlife conservation networks to promote human-wildlife co-existence, even in human dominated landscapes; CNRS-HERD Plains zebra study, Hwange National Park. Individual plains zebra life histories generated have so far revealed the reproductive endocrinology, the reproductive rates, and the demographic consequences of living under heavy predation. Currently explored, are the effects of social instability in the harem forming species, as we investigate the limitations of medium-size herbivores in savannah ecosystems. Research Awards: European Union-DREAM Project (2015-2017); CIRAD & French Embassy Grant Ecol#2 (2009-2012).
