Margaret Stanley

Associate Professor in Ecology with the Centre for Biodiversity and Biosecurity (CBB), School of Biological Sciences, University of Auckland (NZ). My research seeks to understand and mitigate human impacts on terrestrial biodiversity and ecosystems (particularly via disruption of community level interactions, e.g. plant-animal mutualisms). My primary research focuses on the impacts and mitigation of both invasive species and urban development.
