Scott is an applied ecologist with a strong interest in population ecology and management of wildlife populations. Combining large scale replicated field experiments, cross-sectional and modelling studies Scott’s research aims to understand how natural and anthropogenic factors interact to drive population and community dynamics, and how natural resources can be sustainably managed. His current research interests are focused on understanding how management of the uplands affects biodiversity, the cascading trophic effects of localised nutrient enrichment on upland food webs, wildlife population assessment, and development of novel monitoring tools using emerging digital technologies.

Current research interests 

His current research includes:

  • Investigating the effects of deer carcasses on upland food webs
  • Understanding the effects of upland management on biodiversity
  • Population ecology, management, and population assessment of mountain hares

Other interests and recent projects include;

  • Survey and scoping of wildcat priority areas
  • WiSE (Wireless Internet Sensing Environment)
  • Population ecology of mountain hares; the role of parasites and food availability on mountain hare population dynamics
  • FP7Hunt: Hunting for Sustainability
  • North Hunt: Sustainable Hunting Tourism
  • Compensatory population dynamics in a harvested mammal (Annabel Harrison - NERC CASE studentship).

Scott is a Subject Editor for the journal Wildlife Biology and an Associate Member of the Aberdeen Centre for Environmental Sustainability.
