Alke Voskamp publishes paper on the habitat use and distribution of the threatened Javan slow loris
Alke Voskamp a second year PhD student in the Conservation Ecology Group has published work from her Master's research at the University of Exeter in the journal Endangered Species Research. The Javan slow loris (Nycticebus javanicus) is threatened by severe habitat decline and is classified as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. During this study Voskamp et al. made the first confirmed sighting of a Javan slow loris in east Java and were able to extend the known distribution. A link to the paper can be found here.
After 10 years as an Associate Editor with Journal of Applied Ecology, Phil has taken on a Senior Editor role. This is a significant commitment but will ensure the close involvement of Durham's Conservation Ecology Group with the cutting edge of applied ecological science. A Senior Editor role provides an opportunity to help to shape this field, which represents much of the CEG's research efforts.
