We are seeking a PhD student for an exciting new project on the impacts of bushfires and invasive predators on native mammals in south-eastern Australia.

Introduced foxes and feral cats have caused widespread biodiversity loss in Australia, but they do not act alone to impact native fauna. Emerging evidence suggests that bushfires can exacerbate their impacts by removing vegetation cover and making prey species more vulnerable to predation.

A top-up PhD scholarship ($5,000 per annum) is available as part of a project evaluating ecosystem resilience and biodiversity outcomes in relation to fire regimes in the Victorian mallee. The project involves collecting bird community data from ~200 sites that sample a chronosequence of fire age-classes in each of two major vegetation types (Lowan Mallee and Heathland Sands). The data will be analysed to derive metrics of ecosystem resilience and model the effects of fire on bird communities to enhance ecological planning for fire management.
