Zoe Davies is Professor of Biodiversity Conservation at the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE), University of Kent, UK. Her research interests include understanding: (i) conservation practice and policy (e.g. conservation planning, implementation, protected are development, effectiveness of conservation interventions); (ii) nature-human wellbeing relationships (e.g. wellbeing benefits derived from experiencing biodiversity, people’s attitudes, perceptions and values associated with biodiversity); and (iii) impacts of environmental change (e.g. habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation, urbanisation, agricultural intensification and expansion). Much of Zoe’s work is interdisciplinary, drawing on and integrating approaches from the natural and social sciences.
