Order by Lab name

Ballard Lab - Ecological Genomics

We study genes through to genomes of vertebrates and invertebrates. We use first, second and third generation sequencing techniques to decipher the genome and determine how it has changed over time.

Bennett Lab - Landscape ecology

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

Bond Lab - Riverine Landscapes Research Group

We study interactions between the physical environment, (climate, hydrology, fire and land-use), and how these affect ecological patterns and processes across the landscape, including species distributions, population dynamics, connectivity and food-webs.

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.

Crook Lab - Fish Ecology and Fisheries Group

We study the behaviour, biology and ecology of freshwater, estuarine and marine fishes, and focus on understanding how human disturbances - including climate change, water resource use and fisheries – affect the viability and sustainability of fish populations.

Dutka Lab - Marine and Ecophysiology

We study animal ecophysiology and marine ecosystems.

Fernando Lab - 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.

Graves Lab - Comparative Genomics

I work on the organization, function and evolution of vertebrate sex chromosomes.

Green Lab - Ecology and Conservation

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.

King Lab - Applied Aquatic Ecology Research Group

Our group conducts applied and fundamental research on the ecology of freshwater, estuarine and near-shore marine ecosystems, and applies this knowledge to aquatic environmental problems.

McGeoch Lab - Biodiversity Science and Application

Our research looks at how to better measure, model and understand biodiversity and its responses to global change.

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.

Mynott & Shackleton Lab - Biodiversity and Ecology

Our research group uses genetic techniques to answer ecological questions.

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.

Phillips Lab - Plants and Pollinators

We study the ecological and evolutionary consequences of the interactions between plants and pollinators.

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.

Silvester and Holland Lab - Biogeochemistry and Ecotoxicology

Our research investigates biogeochemistry and ecology of freshwater ecosystems.

Van Dyke Lab - Applied Animal Physiology Group

We are broadly interested in how animals “work”. Animals must balance demands of competing physiological functions to maintain homeostasis and survive. They also need to be able to consume enough energy and biomolecules in order to grow and reproduce. We study how environmental changes impact on these processes to determine how individual animals are affected by environmental 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.
