SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY Professor in Zoology Department of Life Sciences Tel 868 662 2002 ext. 82206 E-mail PROF. ADRIAN HAILEY My research interests are the population ecology and physi- ological ecology of animals particularly tortoises snakes and lizards. Before coming to the Caribbean most of my field work had been done in the Mediterranean Greece France and Spain and Southern Africa Zimbabwe. At The University of the West Indies my focus has been on threatened and problem fauna with supervision of several research projects by postgraduates at the request of the Environmental Management Authority EMA and the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment DNRE Tobago. My aim is not only to generate useful information but to professionalise the study of biodiver- sity in Trinidad and Tobago and increase the employment opportunities for our graduates and postgraduates.The subjects of these projects include the pawi and the white-tailed sabrew- ing hummingbird funded by scholarships from the EMA the green and hawksbill sea turtles funded by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago Research Development Fund and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation USA the orange-winged parrot funded by the DNRE and the golden treefrog on El Tucuche.Other postgraduates have studied spider biodiversity and amphibian ecotoxicology.Descriptions of these projects are available through the web page httpsta.uwi.edufstlifesciencesahailey.asp. Kerrie Naranjit MPhil 2012 studied the pawi at Grande Riviere and Morne Bleuparticularly its phenology the pattern of annual ecology and behaviour as the basis for a management plan for this Environmentally Sensitive Species for the EMA. This work was done in collaboration with the Pawi Study Group see httppawistudygroup.yolasite.coma local non-governmental organisation of which we were both founder members. Daveka Boodram MPhil 2012 studied another Environmentally Sensitive Species the white-tailed sabrewing hummingbird in the Main Ridge Forest Reserve Tobago. This work on the distribution habitat use and population ecology of the hummingbird involved capture and banding of the birds and also resulted in a management plan for the EMA. Michelle Cazabon-Mannette recently upgraded to PhD is studying the hawksbill and green turtle populations on the reefs of Tobago in relation to economic use in the fishery now ceased and in dive ecotourism. All five species of sea turtles in Trinidad and Tobago are now fully protected as Environmentally Sensitive Species. Angela Ramsey MPhil of the Department of Natural Resources and the EnvironmentTobago House of Assemblyis studying the ecology of the orange-winged parrot to try to reduce damage by this pest species to agricultural crops. Nicole Sookoo MPhil 2012 studied the effects of six commonly-used pesticides on two amphibian species the wet-season breeding Tungara frog and the dry-season breeding cane toad. These data form a valuable baseline for toxicology of pesticides to tropical amphibians which have been neglected in previous studies. Jo-Anne Sewlal PhD2012 studied the influence of habitat type and disturbance on the biodiversity of the orb-weaving spider guild in Trinidad. This work see was instrumental in several awards to Dr Sewlal including the Caribbean Academy of Sciences Third World Academy of Sciences Young Scientist Award 2010 received from the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda the Honourable Baldwin Spencer in St. Johns Antigua. I was managing editor of the journal Applied Herpetology herpetology being the study of reptiles and amphibians published by Brill The Netherlands from 2003 until the journal ceased publication in 2009. A series of special issues of the journal on the Conservation of Caribbean Island Herpetofaunas were later republished with additional contributions in book form co-edited with the herpetologists from Cave Hill Professor Julia Horrocks and Mona Professor Byron Wilson. The full series describes the conservation situation of the reptiles and amphib- ians of most of the islands of the wider Caribbean from Bermuda to Trinidad and Tobago and from The Bahamas to Barbados and is available in the West Indiana Collection of the Alma Jordan Library. Research on the local herpetofauna partly stimulated by this project included discovery of the fatal disease of amphibians caused by the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in both Trinidad Alemu et al. 2013 and Tobago Alemu et al. 2008 and a study of the small snake Atractus trilineatus which is abundant on the St. Augustine campus. A full list of publications many available as pdf copies is available at httpsta.uwi.edufstlifesciencesahailey.asp. In recent years I have been involved in several single-species accounts for the international organisations the IUCN both the Species Survival Commission and the Red List and CABI the Invasive Species Compendium which are freely available online Greek tortoise 2011 - httpwww.iucn-tftsg.orgtestudo- hermanni-059 Tobago stream frog 2013 - search Mannophryne olmonae Barbados anole and Wattsanole 2013 - httpwww.cabi.orgisc search Anolis extremus and Anolis wattsi 106
