Nick is an applied ecologist with a strong background in wildlife conservation. He sits on the Advisory Group of the North East Scotland Biological Records Centre (NESBReC), the Management and Steering Groups of the North East Scotland Biodiversity Partnership, and is a member of the Grampian Regional Forestry Forum. Nick is an Associate Editor of the journal, Insect Conservation and Diversity and is the local Bird Recorder for North East Scotland.

Current research interests

Nick carries out research on wildlife ecology in general and especially on terrestrial insect ecology. He has particular research interests in the groups Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) and Auchenorrhyncha (plant bugs). His current work focuses especially on how biodiversity responds to changes in land management and includes coordination of the Glen Finglas grazing experiment as well as work on upland habitat restoration schemes. Nick also works on endangered species and is currently carrying out work to support the Scottish Wildcat Conservation Action Plan.
