Description The wetlands along the Nile provide a prime case to study human-wildlife conflicts and human settlements and bird habitats are confined to the small linear habitat along the Nile. The thesis will be embedded in large interdisciplinary project (INREF ECO2) and PhD research projects on this topic. The focus will be on determining community composition and/or behavioural responses to disturbance at salong a gradient of human disturbance. The student will work along in the field with the PhD students who will organize the logistics (boats etc). For details contact Marc Naguib.
