Red Squirrel Conservation in a Mathematical Nutshell with Andy White
From Greg McCracken
Professor Andy White (Heriot-Watt) – whose research is focussed on applying mathematics to understand and manage wildlife systems – discussed the plight of red squirrels in the UK, how mathematical models were key tools in understanding the role of invasive grey squirrels and squirrelpox disease in the replacement of red squirrels, and how mathematics is being used to design forest management plans to conserve the remaining red squirrels in Scotland.
