Janet Gardner is the recipient of a 4-year ARC Future Fellowship, to study which species and habitats are vulnerable to the effects of climate change by studying changes evolving in the size and shapes of birds.
“This work is at the forefront of a rapidly evolving field, which will help us to make the best use of the knowledge we have to respond to climate change and better manage species,” said Dr Gardner.
Dr Gardner said the Fellowship would enable her to not only carry out her own field work but to also incorporate citizen science data.
“This data from the last 50 years is an incredible untapped resource,” she said.
