Tom Martin

Completed

Tom completed a thesis entitled Avifauna, environmental disturbance and biodiversity in two global biodiversity hotspots from data sets collected by the OpWall teams in Honduras and Indonesia. The research project aimed to examine the relationship between avifaunal communities and anthropogenic environmental disturbance in two highly important yet poorly researched ornithological regions; Neotropical cloud forest in Honduras and lowland Wallacean rainforest in Indonesia. The thesis focused particularly on assessing the vulnerabilities of the range-restricted and endemic bird species, which are characteristic of these study sites, and also on examining the extent to which avifauna populations can be utilised as bio-monitors for biodiversity as a whole.
