Joe's research touches on a variety of research areas in community ecology, including invasion ecology, biogeography and spatial statistics. He has a particular interest in practical questions regarding invasive species control and management to protect threatened species.

He also works on theoretical questions regarding coexistence in fluctuating environments and the determinants of community assembly in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. He is involved in three NERP projects along with NERP Researcher Prof Hugh Possingham:

  • Antarctic environmental threats - lessons learned from the Arctic (...

    Abbey is currently a PhD student at the University of Queensland, supervised by Prof Hugh Possingham and Dr Tara Martin. Her research focuses on the use of decision science in making conservation decisions for listed species.

    In particular, she is hoping to look at the process of identifying and designating critical habitats for threatened and endangered species, and using decision science tools to help address some of the uncertainties surrounding where and when to protect critical habitats, and how to maximize the conservation benefit of protection while minimizing the potential socio-economic costs of critical habitat designations.

    I have a background in population-level extinction risk analyses, which I am applying to develop methods for multi-species conservation prioritisation and to re-evaluate the concept of ‘minimum viable population size (MVP)’ using decision theory.

    I am generally interested in conservation prioritisation approaches, and I am involved in a working group focussed on resource allocation problems for threatened species using the Project Prioritisation Protocol (PPP) method. Specifically, I am working with Will ProbertAyesha Tulloch, Liana Joseph,  ...

    Dr Ayesha Tulloch

    Web page

    Ayesha is a conservation biologist interested in monitoring and management of threats to biodiversity. She integrates disciplinary perspectives (economic, social, political and environmental) to evaluate approaches for prioritising conservation investments in multiple stakeholder landscapes. Ayesha has a particular interest in invasive and mobile predators, network theory, return on investment, migratory species and bird ecology.

    Ayesha is currently working on tools and approaches for prioritising investment in management and monitoring of multiple species and threats, with a focus on applying decision-making software for systematic conservation planning and cost-effectiveness analysis to choose between actions for species recovery, and incorporating uncertainty in management outcomes and risk aversion into ...
