Honours students submit their theses

The Honours students have submitted their theses. Jasline investigated the rate of accumulation of knowledge of global mammal diversity over the last three centuries, focussing specifically on a comparison of known phylogenetic diversity versus known species diversity. Alicia studied the rate of extinction of mammal species in Singapore in recent centuries, with a focus on estimating undetected extinctions. Lin Yuan estimated Singaporeans’ willingness to pay for haze mitigation using surveys of the public both in person and online. Yi Zhen conducted surveys in nature reserves in Singapore to explore factors affecting people’s appreciation of the quality of nature reserves. Yin Yue modelled stray dog populations in Nepal to explore optimal strategies for dog sterilisation and population control. Congratulations to all for a job well done!
