Claire Spottiswoode

I am an evolutionary biologist and passionate naturalist with a particular interest in the ecology, evolution and conservation of species interactions. My team and I work on both parasitic and mutualistic interactions between species, via two long-term field projects in central and eastern Africa. Both projects involve close cooperation with rural communities, and rely on their local field knowledge and skill.
