Molecular diet analysis of introduced and native species

Immerse yourself in research that uses ‘ancient’ DNA techniques to explore molecular diet analysis of introduced and native species.

Associate Professor Jeremy Austin uses DNA sampled through space and time to understand:

  • the evolutionary history of living and extinct animals and birds;
  • to assess the impacts of past environmental change on animal and bird populations; and 
  • to provide valuable genetic data for conservation and management of threatened species.
