My name is Pat White and I look forward to contributing to Wildlife Biology as a subject editor. I am a lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland and a member of our Centre for Conservation & Restoration Science. I have worked on various research projects relating to wildlife ecology, monitoring and conservation that have included birds and mammals across a variety of habitats, both in the UK and further afield. I previously worked in the Upland Research Group at the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) and prior to that my PhD was at the University of Reading’s Centre for Agri-environmental Research in conjunction with the GWCT’s Allerton Project in Leicestershire, UK. I originally studied Ecological Science at Edinburgh University where I did some summer research assistant roles at Rothamsted Research and University of Glasgow.
I’m an active member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology & Environmental Management in the UK. Outside of work I love going walking in the countryside with my dogs.
Keywords for area of expertise: wildlife ecology and management, birds, mammals, habitat selection, breeding biology, monitoring technologies, predator control, farming and wildlife.
