Informing conservation management of threatened Australian frog species using population and landscape genetics.


I am a PhD student interested in the conservation genetics of threatened Australian terrestrial frog species. Australia's native terrestrial frogs are facing an increasingly severe conservation crisis. Major threats such as habitat loss and fragmentation, climate change, and increasing urban development are creating imminent risks to species persistence. We need to understand species' responses to these threatening processes to develop conservation plans for these frog species. My research project will use population and landscape genetics to inform the conservation management of threatened Australian frog species.
