Knowledge areas

All of my research has conservation biology as a central theme, with a focus on how species use whole landscapes, particularly the role of dispersal. I take a range of approaches, including manipulative experiments, natural experiments and the application of population genetic techniques. I place a strong emphasis on testing ecological theory using applied conservation problems.

Projects under way are examining how reptiles, beetles and butterflies respond to habitat fragmentation and degradation, including examining the influence of the matrix on species that depend on remnant vegetation.

Honours Project Available. 

Title: Reconnecting landscapes through the matrix. A test using invertebrates.
Principal Supervisor: Professor Don Driscoll
Principal Supervisor contact details: d.driscoll@deakin.edu.au
Associate Supervisor: Dr Nick Porch nicholas.porch@deakin.edu.au
Associate Supervisor, external: Stephanie Pulsford, PhD Candidate, ANU.
Start date: February 2016

Wildlife movement is critical.  It enables effective foraging within a home range, dispersal to new home ranges and range changes in response to climate change.  However, movement is severely curtailed by habitat loss associated with intensive agriculture. Our project aims to discover if wildlife movement can be improved through productive farmland by altering management within paddocks. By understanding the connectivity value of rotational grazing, fences, linear tree plantings, and addition of course woody debris, we will define new methods for enhancing ecological sustainability in production landscapes. Without this knowledge, opportunities for increasing connectivity may be foregone.

This project will involve converting a large invertebrate collection into data in Nick's lab, undertaking statistical analysis with the close guidance of Don and Stephanie, then writing up the project with input from all supervisors.  For the right student, this project has the potential to lead to one or more publications, and a great early start to your career.
