Alexander Elsy

I am a tropical forest ecologist working towards a PhD at the University of Stirling, funded by the IAPETUS DTP. I am interested in forest recovery in late succession and accurately capturing the value of secondary forests in the tropics. My current fieldwork is based on a secondary forest chronosequence in the Barro Colorado Nature Monument, Panama and I have also worked in degraded secondary forest and oil palm plantations in Sabah, Borneo. I have a keen interest in climate and land use change, community ecology and trees and liana interactions.
