Dr. Jasper Slingsby

Plant Ecology and Global Change Biology


My research is predominantly focused on global change in South African terrestrial ecosystems and revolves around field studies and spatial data analyses with the goal of informing policy and management. Most of my projects focus on fire, water, land cover (including invasive species) and climate change.


My core aims are to improve our understanding of:

- the processes that determine the structure, composition, and function of ecosystems

- how global change drivers are altering these processes - and subsequently ecosystems

- how ecosystems function and the implications of global change for societal benefits

- how we monitor and mitigate or adapt to these impacts
