Dr Edwin Parker

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

My research background has broadly focussed on spatial ecology in arboreal primates. I am primarily interested in the application of remote sensing to explore animal movement and resource selection. In addition, I am also interested in landscapes of fear, and how prey perception of risk can influence spatial behaviour.
