PhD Candidate

The University of Melbourne

Anwar is studying the distribution and ecology of Australian grasshoppers for his PhD. He is interested in understanding factors that underlie species distribution at different spatial scales. He is transcribing and geocoding field notebooks of the Australian orthopterist Ken H. L. Key and using them to in spatial analyses to understand their distributional patterns. He is also doing empirical work on grasshopper ecophysiology and habitat use to better understand their ecological requirements and to develop detection models.
