Emily Strange

Emily Strange completed her PhD at the Department of Zoology and Entomology at Rhodes University in Grahamstown/Makhanda of South Africa - between 2014 and 2017. Her research was exploring the impact of biological control methods used to manage floating invasive aquatic plants on native submerged plant communities and what this means for the conservation of South African freshwater systems. This has led to the development of a project in Tanzania exploring the long-term control of harmful invasive plant species in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
