Dr Chris Burridge is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences. His research interests encompass Biogeography, Population and Landscape Genetics, and Molecular Phylogenetics. Chris has studied molecular variation in natural populations and species for over 20 years, including four postdoctoral positions in Australia, New Zealand, and the USA.

Biography

Chris obtained his PhD from the University of Tasmania for a study of the evolutionary relationships among a group of marine fishes (cirrhoitds) using molecular approaches. Chris then completed four postdoctoral positions. At Texas A&M University and Deakin University he studied genetic variation in exploited marine fishes and freshwater taxa of conservation concern. At the University of Otago investigated the legacies of historical changes to drainage configuration (e.g., River Capture) on genetic relationships among contemporary fish populations, and then employed geologically-derived age estimates for these events to calibrate molecular clocks. At CSIRO Marine & Atmospheric Research Chris conducted additional research on exploited marine fishes, before returning to the University of Tasmania, where he now studies a wide variety of taxa and questions using molecular approaches.

Expertise

  • Understanding the history of life on earth by reconstructing evolutionary relationships among lineages and their geographic distribution (Biogeography)
  • Quantifying connectivity between populations and the influence of intervening landscape on individual movement based on the genetic similarity of populations

Research Themes

Dr Burridge's research aligns to the University's research themes of Environment, Resources and Sustainability, and also Marine, Antarctic and Maritime. His research on Population and Landscape Genetics provides information on population connectivity that informs conservation and management activities. In the marine realm, Chris has studied genetic variation in marine fishes and seabirds, increasing our understanding of the relationships among species and the regions they inhabit (biogeography), and connectivity between exploited or imperilled populations.

Collaboration

Chris has conducted research collaborations with industry partners to better understand rates of individual movement among populations, and hence population recovery following perturbation. These include genetic studies of little penguin movement between colonies (with Phillip Island Nature Parks), and genetic diversity and relationships among Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagles (with Woolnorth Windfarms). Chris has also investigated the recovery of beetle communities in recently logged forests (with Forestry Tasmania). Chris also maintains ongoing collaboration with the University of Otago (New Zealand), involving the study of past and present connectivity among freshwater fish populations.

Publications

Chris has published over 50 peer-reviewed scientific research articles. The most significant of these have been investigations of the effects of earth history and species life history on species distributions. These have highlighted that in galaxiid fishes vicariant isolation (the physical isolation of populations owing to the formation of dispersal barriers) has been more influential for the distribution of lineages at finer spatial and temporal scales, while oceanic dispersal is more important in explaining the distribution of lineages at large spatial and temporal scales; this is contrary to previous expectations. He has also documented that rates of molecular change appear faster when measured across shorter temporal scales, known as 'Time Dependency of Molecular Rates'. Chris is also an editor for Diversity & Distributions and the journals Ichthyological Research and Frontiers in Biogeography.

Revision of Chrysogorgia (Coelenterata: Octocorallia: Alcyonacea: Chrysogorgiidae): morphological and molecular diversity (2017)$3,908
Description
Accurate taxonomy is the foundation for improved scientific understanding of the contributions of octocorals to benthic biodiversity and community ecology, and helps inform conservation and sustainable management processes (Watling and France 2011). The relationship between morphological variation and genetic variation, and the phylogeny and biogeography of the genus will be core elements of my research. In addition to being a major contribution to octocoral taxonomy, this research will provide valuable information on octocoral distribution and ecology for uptake in international conservation and management planning processes such as baseline biodiversity assessments and the development of deep-water exploration strategies and monitoring programs in the Great Australian Bight region.

Using ancient DNA to study the genetic distinctiveness and connectivity of the now extinct Norfolk Island colony of the Providence petrel (Pterodroma solandri) (2017)$1,500
Description
The IUCN listed Vulnerable Providence Petrel (Pterodroma solandri) is a pelagic seabird restricted to two breeding colonies off eastern Australia; Lord Howe Island and Phillip Island. Historically, the Providence Petrel also nested on Norfolk Island (adjacent to Phillip Island), comprising~ 1 million breeding pairs, before becoming locally extinct by the late 18th century. The reasons for their decline include exploitation by European settlers subsequent to 1788 and the introduction of mammalian predators. It is currently known that the small population on Phillip Island likely represents a recent colonization from the Lord Howe population rather than a relic population from the geographically closer but now extinct Norfolk population. However, we do not know whether the extinct Norfolk colony was genetically novel, or experienced gene flow with other colonies. The aim of this study is to perform analysis of "ancient DNA" from subfossil Norfolk specimens, as it has the potential to reveal unrecognized taxonomic or genetic distinctiveness that was lost during the Norfolk extinction. In addition, it will assess the importance of immigration as an inhibitor of population extinction from local perturbations, which has significant conservation implications for further studies involving other seabird species.

Using a metabarcoding approach to assist beetle identification for ecologically sustainable forest management (2017)$5,960
Description
Forest managers and scientists are seeking different management models and practices aiming to reconcile demand for timber with biodiversity conservation. Strategies range from retention networks within production landscapes to site-level retention. These practices aim to better integrate the wood production and biodiversity in the broad context of ongoing transformation and simplification of forests. However, few studies address how much of this influence is due the amount of mature forest and how much due to the proximity to mature forest.

Understanding genetic health and diversity of wombats in-light of the increasing sarcoptic mange threat (2017)$2,000
Description
Despite range-wide declines, the bare-nosed wombat remains relatively understudied, with key gaps in our knowledge that are critical for the species conservation. For example, little is known about the genetic diversity and connectivity of populations across the bare-nosed wombats range. Fundamental understanding of the movement among populations and the genetic distinctiveness of mainland Australian, Tasmanian, and Bass Strait island wombats is also lacking; these have been previously suggested to represent subspecies. It is critical to identify genetically unique, and likely diverged, wombat populations that warrant separate conservation recognition. Our research goals are three-fold: 1. To quantify genetic diversity, population structure, and gene flow, revealing wombat movement patterns and genetically distinct wombat populations. 2. To define the phylogenetic relationships among wombat populations from mainland Australia, Tasmania, Flinders Island, and Maria Island. 3. To reveal historical demographic changes and identify populations that are at-risk (i.e. populations that lack genetic diversity, have experienced a bottleneck, etc.).

The molecular mechanisms underpinning transitions in sex determining modes in a temperate viviparous lizard species (2017)$1,000
Description
Sex determination directs offspring sexual development, which can be under genetic (genetic sex determination, GSD), or environmental control (e.g. temperature-dependent sex determination, TSD) or can also be achieved by interactions between genes and environment. Evolutionary transitions between GSD and TSD are common in reptiles, suggesting labile molecular mechanisms underpinning them, yet these mechanisms remain poorly understood. The viviparous snow skink Niveoscincus ocellatus exhibits population divergence in sex determination: a lowland population displaying TSD and a highland population displaying GSD. I will use this unique system to address key knowledge gaps in our understanding of transitions in sex determination systems.

The evolutionary ecology of transitions in sex-determination across the distribution of a temperate lizard species (2017)$6,000
Description
Understanding how species will respond to contemporary, directional climate change is fundamental to evolutionary ecology. Many aspects of reptilian life history are influenced by their thermal environment, including sex determination. Sex determination directs offspring development as either male or female. Sex determination in reptiles can be under genetic control (genetic sex determination, GSD) or environmental control (for example, temperature dependent sex determination, TSD) and genes and environment often interact. There have been frequent transitions in sex determining mode across the evolutionary history of reptiles. Species with TSD have very different responses to climate variation and change than species with GSD; climate change can adversely impact TSD species via the production of cohorts with highly skewed sex ratios. The impacts this will have on the population demographics and persistence of TSD species is unknown. This project uses snow skinks from the Niveoscincus genus to uncover the drivers of transitions in sex determining mode. This project will significantly enhance current models of reptilian responses to climate change, establishing the ecological and evolutionary drivers of transitions and inform modelling against future climates.

Re-establishment plan of Providence petrels (Pterodroma solandri) on Norfolk Island at the sixth International Albatross and Petrel Conference (IAPC6 - Barcelona, Spain) (2016)$1,500
Description
My PhD assessed the likely success of the re-establishment ofProvidence petrels (Pterodroma solandri) on Norfolk Island, where they used to breed (~1m pairs) before European settlement, by using Lord Howe Island individuals. I focused on the potential risks of hybridization between the translocated individuals and a small colony discovered in 1986 on Phillip Island (~20 breeding pairs), 7 km off Norfolk Island, that shows different roosting behaviour. Using 25 genetic markers to investigate connectivity and evolutionary history of the two remaining colonies of Providence petrel, I showed high movement among them, as well as a recent colonization of Phillip Island, which suggest high plasticity of behaviour. These results indicate limited genetic risks surrounding the re-establishment of a key species of pelagicseabird on Norfolk Island, and provide a practical case study in the context of maximizing persistence and resilience of seabird translocations.

Secondary contact, genetic exchange and their consequences for evolutionary diversification (2014 - 2015)$8,800
Description
The proposed research will examine the fine scale genetic structure within one species of Tasmanian endemic snow skink, Niveoscincus ocellatus. Specifically, the project will focus on examining populations along the east coast of Tasmania and in particular, a putative contact zones between two major mitochondrial clades. It will address four key aims; i) characterize the fine scale genetic structure among populations; (ii) establish the extent of genetic mixing at contact zones between two clades; (iii) establish the relationship between geographic limits to dispersal and genetic structuring; (iv) establish the relationship between population genetic and phenotypic divergence. This project will provide important insights into the current and historical factors that influence rates of genetic exchange among populations of N. ocellatus, and their consequences for intraspecific genetic divergence. The findings will contribute to a better understanding of the processes that ultimately lead to the establishment of independent evolutionary lineages. Population studies such as this are a crucial step towards bridging the gap between micro-evolutionary processes and macro-evolutionary change.

Restoring resilience in wildlife populations (2013 - 2016)$624,261
Description
Restoration and revegetation is now firmly on the agenda for Australias management of its biodiversity, including some of its most vulnerable ecological systems. This project will create the first ever landscape models for eco-restoration based on how individual animals perceive habitat quality and predation risk. These ecological processes will be linked to structural elements of the habitat and scaled up to landscape models to ensure that restored and revegetated areas will support wildlife. It will provide a new conceptual approach for restoration projects outcomes that will be used immediately to improve restoration design by the partner organisation and collaborators.

Demographic history of the Tasmanian devil from Pleistocene to present (2013)$35,000
Description
This project will infer the demographic history of the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii). We have little knowledge of historic population dynamics of the Tasmanian devil. Fossil material has left evidence of the species that was previously widespread in Australia, but is now only found in Tasmania. During the last two decades the population has been reduced even further by the spread of the devil facial tumour disease (DFTD), causing substantial population declines, questioning the survival of the species in the wild. The aim of this study is to evaluate the evolutionary history of the Tasmanian devil, addressing changes in genetic diversity, gene flow and population size from the Pleistocene to present. This knowledge will allow us to trace the demographic history of the species, inferring impacts of past events such as: i) the last glacial maximum ~20 kya; ii) the separation of the Tasmania from mainland Australia ~12 kya; iii) introduction of the dingo ~4 kya; and iv) the arrival of Europeans to Tasmania ~200 years ago, along with possible effects these have had on the species. Using DNA material from contemporary devils and museum specimens this project will: compare genetic diversity among the extinct mainland population and the extant Tasmanian devil populations; infer changes in demographic history and population dynamics over the last ~80 kya years of Tasmanian devil history. The study will provide a detailed assessment of demographic history of the Tasmanian devil from Pleistocene to today. This new knowledge will have direct application to conservation of the species, enabling informed management of previous fluctuations in genetic diversity and population size.

Managing Variable Retention Harvesting to Maintain Forest Biodiversity - Effects of Forest Influence and Successional Stage on Recolonisation (2010 - 2012)$490,168
Description
This project will critically appraise and test 'forest influence', a poorly understood ecological concept that is pivotal to the sustainable management of forestry. It will determine whether a new and increasingly common approach, variable retention (VR) harvesting, will attain its objective of sustaining natural diversity in a managed forest landscape. It will do this by collecting and analysing data from two major and disparate forestry regions - Tasmania and the Pacific North-West of USA - and use these to assess how VR affects the colonisation of vascular plants, birds and beetles after forest harvesting. Knowledge gained will identify where and how VR silviculture provides greatest ecological benefits for practical forest management.
