Dr Liaan Minnie

Dr Liaan Minnie is a Lecturer in Ecology at the University of Mpumalanga and a research associate with the Centre for African Conservation Ecology, Nelson Mandela University (NMU). He holds a PhD (Zoology) from NMU and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Higher Education from Rhodes University. As a terrestrial ecologist, his research focuses on carnivore ecology, human-wildlife conflict and predator-prey interactions. He is broadly interested in the drivers of both predator and prey communities in terrestrial ecosystems. Specifically, he is interested in the top-down (e.g., predation, diseases, human impacts) and bottom-up (e.g., rainfall, nutrients, habitat characteristics) mechanisms structuring carnivore and prey communities and variation in these processes between nature reserves and anthropogenically modified systems.
