Chris’s research is about the most effective way to bait feral animals for the protection of threatened species.
Khorloo is studying the impact of invasive deer populations on alpine and sub-alpine peatland communities of the Bogong High Plains in the Victorian Alps. Her aim is to contribute to the conservation and management of peatland systems with the outcomes of her research.
Sana is interested in how to integrate science and practice to deliver better conservation outcomes in environmental decision making.
Hugh’s research focuses on investigating the factors implicated in the ongoing decline of small mammal species across northern Australia.
Hannah studies the effect of management actions on the occurrence of different woodland bird species.
Michelle is investigating how plant traits and fire frequency drive recruitment and persistence of trees in frequently burnt tropical savannas.
Kate is studying how landscape disturbances influence species dynamics and biodiversity, and how to develop tools to aid informed environmental management.
Chris’s research focus on the tradeoffs between development, biodiversity and human well-being and how to model and test different policy options at different spatial scales to make better decisions for conservation and development.
August studies the use of model-averaging to improve Species Distribution Models. Particularly, he is interested in whether or not model-averaging is always better than using a single model and how models may be improved.
Anwar studies the vulnerability of freshwater crayfish to climate change. His research aims to develop a novel analytical tool to predict the effects of climate change, habitat connectivity and management interventions on crayfish conservation status.
Claire is studying conservation genetics of the Growling Grass Frog, Litoria raniformis, in an urban landscape.
Liz is attempting to increase the certainty of rare species distribution models by incorporating species functional traits and assemblage composition into hierarchical models.
Emily is comparing the effectiveness of environmental DNA metabarcoding and electrofishing for sampling freshwater fish communities.
Will is studying applied statistics and forest ecology.
Esti is studying biological invasions from a plant community perspective. She is interested in what makes some species good invaders, as well as what environmental conditions promote high levels of habitat invasibility.
Michaela is studying coextinction (the extinction of dependent species with a host species) and how to manage species under the risk of coextinction.
Alina’s research is focused on the trade-offs in fire management between people and avian biodiversity.
Lucy is researching ways in improving the quality of decisions in management and conservation of wetland biodiversity by exploring quantitative tools for prioritization of resource allocation.
Gerry is studying the elements underlying achieving successful conservation impacts, and how we can, do, and should evaluate them.
Freya is interested in how key plant functional traits are generated for fire prone communities.
Els is studying how much data is needed to make reliable conservation decisions.
Inka is studying movements and habitat use of the Brolga, Grus rubicunda, in south west Victoria.
Casey is interested in studying, modelling, and mitigating impacts of the built environment and infrastructure on biodiversity.
Matt is studying the interactive effects of a range of threatening processes, such as disease and introduced predators, on declining frogs.
Danny is studying the effects of different disturbance regimes on wet forest understory plants. His research focuses on the interactions between the 2009 wildfires and the legacy effects of previous disturbance history, namely timing and type.
Saras is studying plant community assembly and its influence on wetland ecosystem function.
Skipton is studying patterns of sea floor biodiversity, including species richness, beta-diversity, community composition and the spatial aggregation of rare species
