John Herrmann received his Master’s in 2006 from the University of Hohenheim (Germany) and Visayas State University (Philippines) for research on pollinators in sustainable farming systems. He completed his Ph.D. in 2010 at the University of Bern (Switzerland) on the effects of woody habitat fragmentation on arthropods and birds. Afterwards, he conducted a project at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel) to examine the impact of Eucalyptus plantations on native arthropods. Between 2011 and 2014, he was working for the University of Washington to investigate the effects of habitat corridors on seed and arthropod dispersal.
