Academic Appointments
  • Lecturer in Environmental Studies

  • Research Associate in Biological Sciences

Flora Krivak-Tetley is an ecologist with diverse research interests including forest demography, carbon dynamics, insect pest population dynamics, arid regions plant ecology, conservation biology, and social-ecological systems. Her current research focuses on three main areas: (1) modelling partial harvesting as an alternative to clearcutting in British Columbia's interior cedar hemlock (ICH) forests; (2) impacts and population dynamics of the invasive Sirex woodwasp, Sirex noctilio, in Spain, South Africa, Argentina and North America; (3) Integration of field-, drone- and remote-sensing methods to study the impacts of water availability and herbivore use on plant resources in the Namib Desert.
