Toby Gardner

Research Fellow

My background is in tropical ecology and conservation and I have spent much of the last fifteen years working on problems of how to safeguard biodiversity and ecosystem services in a variety of different human-modified systems. Having previously worked in the Caribbean and Tanzania I have spent much of the last decade working in Brazil, and the eastern Brazilian Amazon in particular.

My work has become increasingly inter and trandisciplinary as my interest and appreciation of the inherently multi-dimensional and social-ecological nature of sustainability problems has grown. I am passionate about working within an environment where scientists, land-managers and owners, policy makers and other groups are in close contact, and to better understand how research and opportunities for learning can make a more effective contribution towards resolving pressing sustainability problems.

I have recently joined the weADAPT team as Editor for the Forests and Climate Change theme, and I very much look forward to combining my interests in forests, land-based climate change adaptation approaches, and strategies to enhance how we learn about sustainability to contribute where i can to the development of this fantastic platform.
