The Movement and Landscape Ecology Lab develops tools and techniques for tracking the movement, migration and dispersal of animals in their natural habitat. We integrate bio-logging data with remotely sensed environmental data or physiological information to better understand the drivers and patterns of animal population abundance and distribution. We use this information to address human–wildlife conflicts and threatened species and community conservation. Read more.
Specialist expertise and tech: We are specialists in the application and development of animal telemetry technologies and the analysis and synthesis of these data sources. We are one of the leading laboratories in Australia developing autonomous receiver arrays to track the movements of flying animals over broad spatial scales. We also use technologies such as Doppler Weather Radar, Hydrodynamic models, and Autonomous vehicles to supplement and correlate with the animal occurrence data. The lab is CASA approved for Drone operations and we host a large fleet of diverse craft and remote sensing technologies.
