Dr Ruth Feber
I joined the WildCRU in 1989 as a D. Phil student, studying the ecology and conservation of butterflies on farmland. After completing my thesis I worked on a number of projects including the ecology of field margins, the effects of shape and location of set-aside on small mammals and invertebrates, and the impacts of organic farming on biodiversity. After a few years away, first with CABI Bioscience and then Butterfly Conservation, I returned to the group in 2000. My main interests are wildlife conservation issues relating to agricultural practice, particularly the effects of land management on biodiversity at field, farm and landscape scales.
