Elizabeth Collison
PhD student


My broad interests include environmental biology and ecology and the interactions between anthropogenic activity and natural ecosystems. My undergraduate Final Honours School project studied the potential effects of changing soil moisture conditions on the ecosystem functioning of woodlice and millipedes via a series of mesocosm experiments. In summer 2011, I was awarded a Northern Hemisphere Summer Scholarship at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, where I spent six weeks working alongside Dr. Rochelle Constantine on the Hauraki Gulf Bryde’s Whale photo-identification catalogue, as part of a study of ship collisions on whales. I also assisted Dr. Joanne Peace with fieldwork to monitor reptiles and invertebrates in several of the university’s forest reserves.
