Phylogeography and conservation genetics of Australian birds and mammals, including night parrots, wombats and quolls

ADIFF dna testing 2

Immerse yourself in research that uses ‘ancient’ DNA techniques to explore the evolution and conservation genetics of Australian birds and mammals.

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.

This project specifically explores the phylogeography and conservation genetics of Australian birds and mammals, including night parrots, wombats and quolls.
