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.
How do we feed the world’s growing population? How do we save our wildlife from extinction? Got an idea that will build a brighter, greener world?
Australian high school students are invited to submit a short video about one of Australia’s big science challenges.
