Recent Qaecologist blog posts (May 2013, Weeks 1 & 2)

QAECO post-doc Cindy Hauser kicked off this months’ blogging with her review of what’s been a good read on the internet during April. Cindy also let us know about a recent meeting of the Malleefowl-minded held in Ouyen.

Recent QAECO PhD graduate Sacha Jellinek has hit the blogs of late with three posts updating us on his whereabouts, employment and two recent publications to come out of his work while stationed in the QAECO lab.

Mick McCarthy recently gave a talk to the Mathematical Association of Victoria. He’s put slides up from his talk over at his blog.

The latest instalments of Amy Whitehead‘s Wildlife Wednesday series include the Praying Mantis and the Black-fronted Tern. Amy has also lent a hand to those struggling to combine data frames with the statistical programming language R.

Emily Nicholson has two important papers to tell us about. The first tests the focal species approach to conservation decision making. While the second introduces the science behind the IUCN’s Red List of Ecosystems. Geoff Heard also has a new paper out on a Bayesian model of metapopulation viability, with application to an endangered amphibian.

And finally, Kylie Soanes has photographic evidence to show us it’s not just gliders using her rope bridges across the Hume Highway.
