Dr Dan Bebber
Senior Lecturer (ER) in Biosciences


Dan joined Exeter in January 2013 as a Senior Research Fellow, studying the global distributions of crop pests and pathogens in collaboration with Prof. Sarah Gurr and the organization CABI. Before this he was Head of Climate Change Research at Earthwatch, based in Oxford. Here he managed research at five field centres, in the UK, USA, Brazil, China and India, where the relationship between forest management and climate change was being investigated. His doctorate considered the influence of El Nino-related droughts on forest regeneration in Borneo, and he has research experience in reduced-impact silviculture in Canada, sustainable harvesting of medicinal plants in India and Nepal, and the biology of woodland fungi in the UK.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Forest ecology,
  • food security,
  • species distributions,
  • statistics,
  • spatial analysis,
  • biological networks.
