We are offering an exciting opportunity to undertake a PhD program at the University of Queensland on strategic decision-making approaches for the conservation of the Christmas Island flying fox
We are offering two exciting opportunities to undertake PhD programs at The Australian National University. The scope of potential research is broad, but must have a clear focus on the ecology and conversation of threatened species in south-eastern Australia.
Experts from across the country recently met to review the national guidelines for plant translocation. The important conservation technique is much more than just planting trees, a point well illustrated by work to save the Mellblom's Spider-orchid which has hinged on wasps.
Around 5% or 1150 of Australia's plants are endangered or critically endangered. Dr Jen Silcock is developing a Red Hot List to identify the Australian plants at greatest risk of extinction and what we can do about it.
At a minimum, citizen science can get people thinking about nature, but it can achieve much more as well. Dr Rochelle Steven talks about what we can gain from citizen science programs and the development of a framework that maximises positive impacts for nationally-listed threatened species.
