Prof. Torbjørn Haugaasen, PI
I have worked extensively in the Brazilian Amazon for almost 20 years, but also work in other Amazonian countries and in Africa and Asia. My interests in tropical ecology and conservation are broad and research includes studies of plant-animal interactions, animal movements, ecology and seasonality of floodplain forests, impacts of land-use change on biodiversity, and ecology and management of non-timber forest resources.
I received my PhD from the University of East Anglia (UEA), Norwich, UK, in 2004, for which I examined the structure and dynamics of plant and animal communities in a large mosaic of floodplain and terra firme forest in the Brazilian Amazon. Subsequently, I held a post-doc position based at the National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA, Manaus, Brazil) and UEA, investigating the ecology of the Brazil nut tree.
