William Laurance is a Distinguished Research Professor at James Cook University and also works with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama. His prolific research career includes the publication of five books and over 300 scientific and popular articles.
His research focuses on the impacts of intensive land-uses, such as habitat fragmentation, logging, and wildfires, on tropical ecosystems, and on global-change phenomena and conservation policy. He firmly believes that scientists must engage policy makers and the general public, as well as other scientists.
