Honours project available: Starting Trimester 1, 2020 (February - October)

Project Title: Within-and between year variability in flying fox pup births and survival Supervisor: Dr Alison Peel Project: Frugivorous bats play an important role in the maintenance and rejuvenation of forests through pollination and long-distance dispersal of seeds. Widespread land clearance throughout the east coast of Australia has seen the loss of up to 75 per cent of the once contiguous forest cover in Queensland and New South Wales, resulting in extensive loss of critical habitat and food sources for flying fox species.
