Simon Coats

Simon finished his Master in GIS (MGIS) in 2018. He modelled the distribution of suitable Canterbury mudfish (Neochanna burrowsius) habitat within Canterbury. His thesis also used graph theory to investigate the benefit on habitat connectivity on N. burrowsius metapopulation persistence.

Tim Green

Tim completed his MSc in 2018. His research investigated whether commonly used in-stream habitat restoration tools, such as coarse woody debris and large inorganic substrate additions, can effectively restore benthic macroinvertebrate communities in lowland Canterbury waterways. He focussed on habitat requirements at two key stages in these animals’ life history – egg-laying (oviposition) by terrestrial winged adults, and aquatic larvae.

Roland Eveleens

Roland completed his BSc (Hons) in 2017, investigating the role of disturbance in shaping stream macroinvertebrate communities. His research used a field experiment to investigate the interaction of disturbance history and disturbance type on community structure.

Nicky Glenjarman

Nicky completed her MSc in 2017. Her research linked the effects of fine inorganic bed sediment and NZ fish community composition. Nicky also undertook some fish toxicology experiments looking at fish feeding rates under a range of turbidity conditions.
