ArcticNet - About us

Joel Heath

(Biography) My research combines theoretical and empirical approaches in a multi-disciplinary framework to increase understanding of patterns and processes in ecological systems, with applications to conservation biology. I am particularly interested in spatial and temporal scaling, coupling between physical and biological systems and interactions between individual behaviour, population dynamics and community ecology. Using interviews and collaborative field work, I also incorporate longer term Local Ecological Knowledge into my research, therefore involving local communities and increasing the scope of inference of the research program. I also place a major emphasis on public dissemination of science using presentations, film, photography, and the internet.
