Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship

 2016 Winner

 

 The 2016 scholarship has been awarded to Mr Lain Pardo of James Cook University.  

Lain is completing his PhD entitled “Diversity and habitat use of medium and large-sized mammals across oil palm dominated landscapes in the Llanos region of Colombia” at James Cook University in Cairns, Queensland. He is under the supervision of Prof. Bill Laurance, Dr. William Edwards and Dr. Reuben Clements.  Lain’s doctoral research focuses on assessing the impacts of oil palm plantation expansion on larger mammals in Colombia, his native country. The explosive expansion of oil palm in Colombia is a rapidly growing threat to biodiversity there. Lain is using camera-trapping methods to estimate mammal detections and community composition in a range of modified and relatively natural ecosystems in Colombia. His work will clearly have important implications for land-use and conservation policy in Colombia and beyond.

There were many very deserving applicants to whom we could easily have awarded this scholarship. Thank you to everyone who applied and good luck with your future studies and careers.
