Dr Paul Johnson
I have been involved with quantitative problems over a wide range of projects, spanning animals from mice to tigers. I have been particularly involved with farmland wildlife issues in the, including the Burns inquiry into hunting with dogs, and organic farming. A WildCRU collaboration with the BTO, the RAC and CEH assessed the biodiversity implications of organic farming across the UK landscape. We are currently exploring the factors underlying the observed patterns.
Current projects also include a collaboration with the Durell Wildlife Trust looking at the scale and causes of bushmeat exploitation in West African moist forests, widely acknowledged to constitute a major crisis for biodiversity.
I am a retained lecturer in Quantitative Methods, Pembroke College, Oxford and an associate editor of Acta Oecologia.
