Brendon's research concerns the social dimensions of biodiversity conservation, or, more specifically, how people perceive and evaluate conservation options in the current era of dramatic global change (which some call the Anthropocene). He is interested in changing views and practices of nature and conservation in this era, with a focus on topics such as invasive species, assisted migration, and novel ecosystems. If you are interested, please peruse his website and then contact him to discuss specific research options. He also has research projects in other areas, including the role of metaphor in the framing and communication of environmental issues. At present, he teaches an introductory ecology course and a field course on natural history where students observe plants and animals directly on the Bruce Peninsula.
