Robbie McDonald University of Exeter

Professor Robbie McDonald
Chair in Natural Environment


I am interested in mammal ecology and small carnivores in particular, having previously studied the biology of the weasel family. My research has included looking at the science, policy and practical implications of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in badgers, and the impacts and management of invasive species. I hope to develop a programme of applied, interdisciplinary work that will help Cornwall, the South West, and the UK develop in a sustainable way. I lead the University's partnership with the National Wildlife Management Centre as part of a Wildlife Research Co-Operative.

I am a member of the Environment and Sustainability Institute.
