My research interests are in fire ecology, habitat fragmentation, dispersal and connectivity. I continue to explore ways that ecological theory related to those fields can be used to predict effects and to communicate findings. Key NERP-related research includes projects examining dispersal and connectivity in fragmented landscapes, and fire decision theory.

With colleagues at ANU I am exploring the role of the matrix (modified, cleared or urbanized land) on species that depend on small patches of native vegetation (Project 2.2). We have developed a conceptual model of the matrix that will provide new-comers to the field with a rapid and comprehensive understanding of how the matrix works. The conceptual model and asso ...

Melinda's research is focused primarily on invertebrates and their management. She has interests in coextinction (extinction of host-dependent taxa with or before their host species), restoration, threatened taxa, refugia, biogeography and taxonomy. Melinda is also interested in the consequences for Australia's invertebrates in a changing climate, and possible management strategies.

Dr Kara Youngentob

I completed a PhD in Environment from the Australian National University in 2010 and a MSc in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida in 2004. My main interests are in applied ecological research to inform and improve wildlife management and conservation decisions. I am also a big fan of science communication. My current project for the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub involves investigating how forage quality might influence landscape use by koalas and other leaf-eating animals. I am also developing tools to map the quality of forage for browsing herbivores using airborne hyperspectral remote sensing data. In addition, I contribute to the development of derived remote sensing products, such as forest canopy ...
