Immerse yourself in research that uses ‘ancient’ DNA techniques to explore molecular diet analysis of bent-winged bats.

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.
