Behaviour, ecology, evolution and ecophysiology

Our research uses techniques including molecular genetics, satellite tracking, underwater sonar, next-generation sequencing, thermal imaging, remote sensing, electrophysiology and selection experiments. We study a wide range of organisms including birds, sea life and plants.

Major research areas

We carry out fieldwork research across Australia and overseas, including:

  • animal navigation and migration
  • behavioural ecology
  • sensory ecology
  • disease ecology and evolution
  • population structure, evolution and climatic impacts
  • stress responses and epigenetics.
