Welcome to Daniele Battocchio, who will be visiting us from the University of Sassari, Italy, until the end of July. Daniele is working towards a PhD on the ecology and management of ungulates in Tuscany. Whilst in Durham, he will be looking at data on culled roe deer from Tuscany, and considering issues of maternal condition and reproductive decisions.
Congratulations to Pen-Yuan Hsing on securing a Ustinov travel award to support his participation at the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology in Montpellier, France in August 2015. Pen will be presenting a talk on his PhD project.
