Associate Professor, Faculty of Forestry
Associate Professor Jay Malcolm specializes in wildlife (especially small mammal) ecology, conservation biology, community ecology, tropical ecology, and landscape ecology. His research interests include small mammal ecology and biogeography, diversity and abundance of tropical organisms, the impacts of human induced landscape changes (especially logging) on diversity and ecological processes, relationships between landscape features and biological diversity, and the effects of global warming on natural systems. He has examined forest fragmentation and edge effects, the impacts of global warming on ecosystems, and mammalian adaptations to arboreality and seasonality.
