About Edward Hart

Third-year student of Biological Sciences at Durham University and Laidlaw Research and Leadership Scholar. Academically, my specific interests are Ecology, Ethology and Conservation Biology. The aims of my research project are to collate data on African mammals that act as wildlife-based tourism (WBT) attractants and then utilise mathematical modelling processes to relate the distribution of these species to climate and habitat, predicting how much species might alter their ranges in the next 50-years in response to regional climate change. This research will provide an insight into the fundamental mechanisms of WBT, an essential source of income for many developing countries, and how changes in species distributions due to climate projections might affect WBT. When I am not studying, I really enjoy running, hiking and anything nature-related! I also spend a lot of my time reading and have been recording these books for the last few years (here: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/68948740-edward-hart). I am more than happy to discuss my research topic, books, etc... via email or Facebook :)

Research Proposal - The potential of global climate change to affect the nature-based income of developing countries in the tropics

I am currently in the second year of this project under the supervision of Professor Stephen G Willis. Below is the research proposal for this project. N.B. Some details are subject to change (these will be highlighted in my final report).
