Human-induced changes in the genetic structure of amphibian populations
Human-induced landscape change has resulted in the fragmentation of Australian landscapes, with often severe consequences for native animals. As part of my PhD research, I will be comparing museum specimens of a number of frog species collected north-east of Melbourne over the last 45 years, with data gathered from current populations, to investigate genetic population structure in response to landscape changes. This research will hopefully prove useful for directing biodiversity assessment and development planning in Australian landscapes.
My PhD forms part of a ARC linkage grant between the University of Melbourne and Museum Victoria, involving Jane Melville, Mike Kearney, Katie Smith, Kirsten Parris, Murray Littlejohn, Jeremy Austin and Josh Van Buskirk.
