Morgan Tracy – Current MSc
Morgan is working on neighbourhood effects of invasive lupins on the pollination of native brooms- Carcmichaelia sp. Her research site is the Lake Tekapo Scientific Reserve near Tekapo, where native flora is recolonising old outwash soils.

Professor Pierre-Michel Forget
Pierre Michele is part of the Nigerian Montane Forest Projects and has collaborated with us in research into seed dispersal through the scatterhoarding behaviour of the African giant pouched rat.
Professor Phil Hulme
Phil is currently collaborating with myself and students Michelle Williamson and David Kerr
Professor Michael Lawes – Active collaborator in Afromontane research.
Professor Colin Chapman
We collaborate in areas of forest restoration and primate mediated seed dispersal. Currently PhD students interested in such research in Nigeria (where we cannot send students just now) can carry out equivalent field research in collaboration with myself and Colin in Uganda.
