Vanishing beasts: the conservation of African rhinoceros


With: Dr Isa-Rita Russo is a population geneticist from the University of Cardiff (Wales, UK) with experience in population and landscape genetics/genomics. Her research focusses on how landscape variables affect gene flow and adaptation in several taxa (brown bears, giant pandas and small mammals, African buffalo) by combining large-scale genetic, disease and environmental data sets to test for correlations between landscape features/disease status and gene flow/adaptation. She is also interested in how genetic variation has been shaped due to past demographic events and changes in population size using Approximate Bayesian Computation and pairwise sequentially Markovian coalescent methods for microsatellite/SNP and whole genome sequencing data respectively. In addition, she is involved in several projects as a member of the IUCN Conservation Genetics Specialist Group (CGSG) at the policy-science interphase. As one of the co-coordinators of the African node of CGSG she is leading a project aiming to collect, collate and interpret the current knowledge of the genetic composition of southern African vertebrates and make this information accessible to conservation practitioners, the wildlife industry, and governments as genetic management guidelines.
