Christos MAMMIDES​

Christos MAMMIDES received his PhD degree, in Conservation Biology, from Imperial College London where he used statistical modeling to quantify the impacts of anthropogenic activities on bird communities in protected areas, using data from Kenya and Cyprus. In 2014, he joined Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Yunnan, China, as a postdoctoral researcher, to study how land-use and altitudinal gradients affect the associations of species in mixed-species bird flocks. He joined our group at Guangxi University as an Associate Professor in September 2016. Christos is mainly interested in using statistical and spatial tools to understand the mechanisms by which human activities affect biodiversity, and also in understanding how different socio-economic factors drive these activities.  His Researchgate profile is at: and he can be reached by e-mail at:
