Applied ecology and wildlife conservation
- Threatened species conservation and management
- Wildlife population dynamics
- Disease ecology including host-reservoir interactions
- Captive breeding and reintroduction
- Ecological modelling
- Frogs, Fish and Fungus (Chytrid) plus things that fly (birds and bats)
- Manipulating environmental and trophic interactions to reduce disease risk for threatened frogs.
- Using sound recorders to understand wildlife (frog and bird) populations. This project is supported by Industry.
- Developing improved (non-invasive) strategies to monitor threatened amphibians during mark-recapture programs.
- How far can frogs hop? Understanding movement and dispersal to inform management of threatened frogs.
- Are freshwater spiny crayfish impacted by amphibian chytrid fungus, and can crayfish facilitate chytrd transmission to frogs?
- Why do frogs produce an odour? This research project may be undertaken with Zoo Industry partners
