Researchers undertake projects to study biodiversity and the impacts of fire and invasive animal and plant control on mammals, birds and reptiles inhabiting a range of vegetation types at Booderee National Park and Beecroft Weapons Range near Jervis Bay on the Southern coast of NSW, Australia.
The work around Jervis Bay encompasses a range of studies. These include:
- Long-term monitoring of the responses to fire of birds, mammals, reptiles, frogs, and plants.
- The response of the Long-nosed Bandicoot to burnt environments
- Ringtail Possum nesting habits
- Diamond Python spatial ecology
- The impacts of spatial heterogeneity in vegetation cover on mammals and birds
- The impacts of fire on amphibians
- The spatial ecology and genetics of small terrestrial mammals
- The effects of urbanisation on vertebrates
- The mitigation of military training effects on environmental values
- Interspecific competition between mammal species
- Fire effects and macropod responses
