Dr Dan Parker (Senior Lecturer/Senior Scientist)


My formative research centred around the feeding ecology of megaherbivores (giraffes and elephants) in the Eastern Cape. However, a research "gap year" working with Drs Andy Loveridge and Zeke Davidson ignited my interest in the larger carnivores of Africa. Nevertheless, I still maintain relatively broad research interests within the fields of community and macro-ecology and examples of some of my current projects are: 1) Large carnivore ecology; 2) Human-predator conflict; and 3) The foraging ecology of large herbivores.
