Our Technical Director, Carlos Abrahams, has a long-standing research interest in wetland ecology. His particular area of expertise covers the ecology of wetlands that have fluctuating water-levels, such as reservoirs and temporary ponds. One of his published scientific papers, ‘Climate change and lakeshore conservation: a model and review of management techniques’ is influencing other researchers around the world and has recently been cited in a number of international studies.
Eight recent examples are listed below:
