Kurzer Lebenslauf

Dr Mengüllüoglu completed his doctoral studies at the Freie Universität Berlin and the IZW on the Foraging Ecology, Genetic Diversity and Spatial Behaviour of Caucasian lynx in Anatolian part of Turkey.  His research at the IZW also focused on the prey and habitat preferences and conservation genetics of gray wolf, brown bear and caracal in Turkey. Since 2020, Dr Mengülloglu is raising funding and developing his research framework on the conservation ecology and genetics of the extant felid species in Turkey.
  • Evolutionary ecology and genetics
  • Comparative research to understand intraspecific variation of ecological and genetic traits of wide-ranging carnivores
  • Providing scientific data and evidence-based research to fill the gap for large carnivore and herbivore conservation in Turkey
  • In collaboration with Turkish wildlife authorities and NGOs, forming viable populations of endangered carnivores and herbivores through conservation research and practice
  • Human-carnivore conflict and co-existence
