Order by Lab name

Bennett Lab - Landscape ecology

Our research investigates how landscape structure and landscape change affect the ecology and conservation of native fauna.

Bird Lab - Science education

My research explores the nature of knowledge sharing and building in assessment communities.

Clarke Lab - Fire and Avian Ecology

Our Fire Ecology group investigates the effects of fire on biodiversity. Our Avian Behaviour and Ecology Group conducts research on the evolutionary biology of birds.

Denise Fernando - Plant ecophysiology and metal abiotic stress

I investigate heavy metal tolerance and toxicity in plants, and the related effects of climate change.

Gibb Lab - Insect ecology

Our research investigates community ecology and global change biology, with a focus on terrestrial arthropods.

Green Lab - Conservation biology

Our group investigates the biology and impact of both invasive alien and over-abundant native species that reconfigure ecosystems, and how to manage these species.

Harvey & Woelkerling Lab - Coralline algae: taxonomy and ecology

Our research focuses on the taxonomy, ecology, distribution and biodiversity of Coralline Red Algae and Rhodolith Beds in Australia.

Hoebee Lab - Plant reproduction, ecological and conservation genetics

We investigate plant reproduction, population genetics and evolution. Our research techniques span traditional field-based ecology and morphological investigations to next-generation sequencing.

Keane Lab - Plant Pathology and Mycology

My research investigates plant pathology, focusing on management of pests and diseases of cocoa in Indonesia and diversity of macrofungi.

Lesku Lab - Sleep Ecophysiology

Our research uses the comparative approach to reveal the evolutionary history of sleep and sleep functions. We also investigate how ecological demands (e.g. anti-predator behaviour, mating) influence the amount, composition, depth and timing of sleep in wild animals.

Morgan Lab - Plant ecology

Our research investigates the dynamics of plant communities and the impact of natural disturbances and global environmental change. Our research areas include: interactive effects of fire, grazing and drought in grasslands and woodlands, and how climate change, fragmentation and shrub encroachment affect ecosystem dynamics.

Murphy Lab - Molecular ecology and evolution

My research investigates how species biology and evolutionary history affects present distributions and the ability to cope with future environmental change.

Neil Murray - Ecological, evolutionary and conservation genetics

My research documents genetic change in response to environmental change. This includes climate change, and genetic approaches to management of natural populations, for both conservation and fishery management.

Peters Lab - Animal behaviour

Our research spans broad interests in animal behaviour and evolution of animal signals, including vibratory, acoustic and movement-based signals.

Robert Lab - Reproductive ecology

We study maternal reproductive investment and the impact on offspring characteristics and fitness in a diverse range of taxa, including reptiles, birds and marsupials.

Steinbauer Lab - Insect-plant interactions

We study how the nutritional and non-nutritional elements of plants affect the biology, behaviour, ecology and evolution of phytophagous and pollinating insects.

Strugnell Lab - Marine Molecular Biodiversity

We apply next generation sequencing tools to research questions of interest for fisheries and aquaculture industries. We also investigate population and species level molecular evolution in marine species in the context of past climatic and geological change.

Webb Lab - Environmental Geoscience

My research focuses on the influence of climate and land-use change on groundwater. Research areas include: improving treatment procedures for acid mine drainage and understanding the formation of acid sulphate soils.

Westerman Lab - Molecular evolution in Australasian marsupials

My research investigates the reconstruction and understanding of the phylogenetic relationships of Australasian marsupials, using molecular and morphological data.
