Haemish I Melville
I am a wildlife ecologist with research interests in community ecology. I am particularly interested in the intra-guild interactions of mesopredators, predator prey interactions and population dynamics.
I currently work as a lecturer in Nature Conservation in the Department of Environmental Sciences of UNISA (University of South Africa).
I received my PhD from the department of Wildlife and Fisheries Science of Texas A&M University based on my dissertation: The Impacts of Three Common Mesopredators on the Reintroduced Population of Eastern Wild Turkeys in Texas.
Prior to which I received my MSc from the Centre for Wildlife Management of the University of Pretoria based on my thesis: Behavioural Ecology of the Caracal in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, and its Impact on Adjacent Small Stock Production Units.
Immediately after both my MSc and PhD degrees I managed semi-commercial wildlife production units in the United Arab Emirates.
