Prof Doug Armstrong

Professor in Conservation Biology

Institute of Agriculture and Environment

My research programme focuses on improving methods for understanding population and metapopulation dynamics of threatened wildlife, with particular application to reintroduction.  This research involves analyses of field experiments and long-term data sets within the frameworks of adaptive management and structured decision making.  Field projects have involved many different wildlife restoration projects around the North Island of New Zealand as well as offshore islands., and an 11-year project on management of native forest fragments on Rereahu farms in the central North Island.

Project Title: An experimental test of metapopulation theory using reintroductions of a New Zealand bird species

Experimental test of metapopulation theory using reintroductions of New Zealand robins to unoccupied forest fragments in the central North Island. Metapopulation theory says that species will decline from fragmented habitats due to isolation alone, even if there is no decline in habitat quality. However, it has never been tested in the field.
