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 ...
