About the Kingston Lab

I describe research in my lab as “conservation ecology”, and my aim is that our efforts make contributions to both the conservation of the world’s imperiled bat species (primarily in SE Asia) and the advancement of ecological knowledge. So although most of our research has conservation applications, it is rooted in fundamental ecological and evolutionary principles.

My work has focused primarily on determining the extent of spatio-temporal variability in bat assemblage composition and structure in primary forest in Peninsular Malaysia, to provide a baseline for interpreting the responses of bat assemblages to anthropogenic habitat disturbance. My students’ research centers primarily on understanding the ecological mechanisms behind the disturbance responses.Here is a taste of what they have been getting up to….
