Teaching Responsibilities

Research Interests

I work on the ecology, behaviour and conservation of mammals. My main interests focus around the different strategies adopted by males and females, and the impacts that these have on behaviour, ecology and social structure. This has resulted in three main current themes: a) Parental investment strategies, including sex allocation b) Impact of disease and predation on social ecology c) Impact of management strategies on behaviour and ecology.

These and other potential projects are available in 2011

Monitoring the effects of human disturbance on breeding wedge-tailed eagles (2019)$31,818
Description
The research is a collaboration between UTAS and the Forest Practices Authority (FPA) to use cameras to monitor the breeding behaviour of Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles. the study aims to determine if the adult eagles spend at the nest is affected by nearby forestry activity.

Paternal sex allocation: investigating sperm sex ratios and a potential hormonal mechanism for adjustment (2017)$1,500
Description
We will investigate the extent to which fathers are able to influence offspring sex ratios by determining whether sperm sex ratios vary among and within individuals and if these sperm sex ratios correlate with offspring sex ratios. We will also be investigating a hormonal mechanism by which sex allocation occurs. Because of testosterones intimate relationship with reproductive physiology and behavior, it is a likely candidate by which sex ratios are adjusted at conception. Manipulating sex ratios can be used as a management tool in reducing or increasing populations. By identifying factors that result in a sex bias, those factors can be managed to skew sex ratios in a desirable direction.

Quantitative assessment of feral horse abundance, movement patterns, and reproduction in the Australian Alps (2017 - 2018)$11,500
Description
Feral horses are considered a serious threat to Australian alpine ecosystems due to their large size and selective grazing. Monitoring impacts and managing feral horses requires knowledge of local density, and population estimations must be accurate and cost-effective.In 2014 aerial surveys estimated there were 9,455 feral horses in the Australian Alps. While helicopter counts are useful for broad estimates, they are costly, making extensive use impractical, and are less accurate in smaller areas. This project aims to develop a local population estimation technique by censusing 3 feral horse populations and determining the accuracy of various population density estimation methods.

Does mother know best? Unifying proximate causation and ultimate explanation in mammalian sex allocation (2014 - 2016)$350,000
Description
The study of parental effects is a fundamental area in evolutionary ecology, but is characterized by poor integration of theory (ultimate causation) and physiology (proximate causation). This is true in sex allocation research that focuses almost exclusively on ultimate causation without integrating the physiological mechanisms for sex ratio adjustment. Using a combination of experiments and modelling, the project will address this gap in understanding mammalian sex allocation, by specifically examining 1) the lack of known mechanism; 2) connections between proximate mechanistic explanation and adaptive fitness explanations; and 3) knowledge on constraints. The project proposes that one mechanism, pre-implantation glucose levels, links adaptive hypotheses with proximate causation.
