Associate Professor Weihong Ji

Senior Lecturer

Institute of Natural and Mathematical Sciences

I am a behavioural ecologist teaching ecology and conservation papers and research in the field of animal behavioural ecology and human-wildlife interactions. I obtained a PhD degree in Environmental Science at the University of Auckland, New Zealand in 2001. My PhD project focused on behavioural responses of Australian brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecular) to population density reduction and female sterility. For my postdoctoral research, I worked on the contact behaviour in brushtail possums and badgers (meles meles) for which I based in the school of Biological Sciences at University of Auckland (March 2002 –December 2003) and Environmental Department, The University of York, UK (January 2004- February 2005). Since March 2005, I have been lecturing in the field of Zoology and Conservation ecology at Massey University.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

My research interest is in vetebrate behavioral ecology and the effect of human induced changes on behaviour, life history and fitness of wild animal populations. My research topics include 1. social and mating systems of vetebrates; 2. the effect of conservation management on behaviour of wild animals including pest species and native animals 3.the effect of human induced habitat degradation on wild animals. I have recently innitiated a research programme investigating the effect of urbanisation on life history and behaviour of wild animal populations involving both PhD and MSc students.
