Luke Emerson

Luke’s research centres on understanding the mechanisms by which biological communities are structured in space and time, by investigating the factors influencing the distribution, abundance, and behaviour of wildlife, particularly mammals. This research is important given the persistent and dramatic environmental changes across the globe, largely due to anthropogenic forces, which is resulting in loss of biodiversity and ecological functioning. To date, his research has focused on the ecology of arboreal marsupials and large carnivores.
