Reader in Conservation Ecology, Liverpool John Moores University

Sarah Dalrymple is a Reader in Conservation Ecology at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. She is a plant ecologist focusing on threatened species and responses to global threats such as climate change, and on the efficacy of conservation interventions.

Sarah has undertaken various practical conservation initiatives including reintroduction and habitat restoration, has reviewed threatened plant translocations, and contributed to policy documents, including co-authoring the IUCN Reintroductions Guidelines (2013) and the Scottish Code for Conservation Translocations (2014). Sarah is currently working across the conservation and forestry sectors to find common approaches to minimise biodiversity loss including opportunities to use translocations as bioassays of environmental change, and explore the use of assisted colonization to avoid species extinctions due to climate change.

Sarah is Programme Leader for BSc Wildlife Conservation at LJMU, and also an Associate Editor for the journals Ecological Solutions and Evidence and British and Irish Botany.
