These include:

  • Coral bleaching on the GBR: Improving future projections of frequency and severity of bleaching events.
  • Fish diet and climate change: Does diet predisposes species to increased threats from climate change?
  • Drivers of the edge of the range: Establish the determinants of the range limits of antilopine wallaroo
  • Ice Age Ecologist: Test efficacy of conservation threat metrics to detect past extinctions.
  • Climate change in Australia: Identify historical periods of abrupt climate change and compare with forecasts
