Brad is a field ecologist and biologist who applies ecological and evolutionary theory to the management and conservation of animal and plant species. He has a special interest in seabird conservation.
Ben is interested in the intersection of animal behavior and ecology. His research has focused on a variety of mammal species including ring-tailed and white-nosed coatis, beach mice, and capuchin monkeys.
Joe researches the mechanisms that permit plants to survive when times are tough. He has a particular focus on how plant species with crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) respond to temperature and water-limitation.
Conrad's research program consists of: evolution, ecology and conservation; and systematics and taxonomy. He is particularly interested in processes of population divergence and the formation of new species.
Stephen's research is focused on understanding biodiversity, assessing the vulnerability of biodiversity to global climate change and using this knowledge to maximise the positive benefits of conservation management and adaptation.
