Dr Sam Banks

Project Leader
The Australian National University

Sam Banks is an ecologist and population geneticist at the Australian National University. His major research projects seek to understand how fire influences the population dynamics and genetic diversity of native animals and plants. He also conducts research on how we manage genetic diversity in programs to reintroduce native mammals in the ACT and at Booderee NP.

Other collaborative research involves using genetic data to understand animal movement patterns, such as understanding crocodile movement to better manage and conserve crocodile populations in northern Australia.More info can be found at:
