Dr M Corrie Schoeman
Dr Schoeman is an evolutionary ecologist with more than 10 years experience in the field. At UKZN he has established a dynamic research group that addresses classical and contemporary questions of ecology and evolution on the patterns and causes of biodiversity, from genes to ecosystems, in human dominated and natural landscapes of Africa and Madagascar.

Dr Schoeman teaches undergraduate and Honours courses in evolution and ecology and was awarded the UKZN Distinguished Teacher Award in 2012.
