MEEG students at the International Congress on Conservation Biology, Montpellier

MEEG PhD student Tracey Hamston and Honorary Associate Andrew Bowkett presented their work at the International Congress on Conservation Biology in Montpellier last week. This was the biggest conservation biology conference yet with over 2,000 delegates. Tracey gave a talk on her work on conserving the processes that lead to the extraordinary species diversity seen in Devon's polyploid Sorbus trees while Andrew presented a poster on the genetic structure of forest antelope populations in the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania. Both lab members are employed by the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust based at Paignton Zoo.
