PhD defense

On Friday 2nd December, Cyril Milleret will defend his PhD thesis "Spatial ecology of wolves in Scandinavia; From spatio-temporal dynamics of wolf pairs to wolf population dynamics" at campus Evenstad.

Understanding how spatial and temporal variations shape populations is necessary to develop trustworthy conservation and management planning. In his thesis, Cyril used individual-based long-term monitoring data of the grey wolf (Canis lupus) collected in Scandinavia during its recolonization phase since the early 1990’s. His main goal was to identify how habitat can affect the demography of this social carnivore species living in packs focussing especially on the territorial pair.

The defense will be held at campus Evenstad on Friday the 2nd of December.

11h15: Trial lecture "The niche concept and species distribution models in a changing world"

13h15: Defense "Spatial ecology of wolves in Scandinavia; From spatio-temporal dynamics of wolf pairs to wolf population dynamics"

The defense will be in English.
