Dr Daniella Teixeira

Project Researcher
The University of Queensland

Daniella Teixeira is investigating how vocal behaviour and bioacoustic technology can improve the monitoring of breeding in the endangered South-eastern Red-tailed Black-cockatoo and the Glossy Black-cockatoo. Existing monitoring efforts by human observers are limited by the birds nomadic and often cryptic behaviours. Bioacoustic technology may offer a cost-effective alternative for monitoring these species over vast areas and for long time periods.

Daniella is primarily interested in improving estimates of breeding success, and how this is related to food supply.  She has field sites in Queensland, Victoria and on Kangaroo Island in South Australia.
