The main aim of Chrystal's PhD project is to gain an understanding of the combined effects of climate change, habitat loss and other drivers of land-use change on biodiversity. Using this knowledge she will then develop a decision framework for making robust decisions to conserve freshwater biodiversity in the face of both climate and land-use chan ...

Dr Melinda Moir

Melinda's research involves estimating co-extinction rates and providing management advice for co-threatened species. Co-extinction is the loss of a dependent species with its host plant or animal. By utilizing existing datasets of insects from plants, Melinda is identifying management strategies for sustaining viable populations of endangered ins ...

Dr Michael Wysong

Nowhere is the competing conflict between nature and culture more apparent within a single wildlife species in Australia than with the dingo; a species that is at once both classified as a pest and protected species, and perceived as feral or native. The dingo has long been considered a threat to the pastoral industry and government sponsored dingo ...
