PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Phylogenomic assessment of conservation priorities in two biodiversity hotspots: The Pilbara and Kimberley

The Pilbara and Kimberley regions of Western Australia are renowned for the great natural beauty associated with their unique and ancient landscapes, the mineral wealth associated with those landscapes, and their high biodiversity. These regions are front and centre of the booming Australian mining industry, an industry credited with keeping Australia out of the recent world economic downturn.

This project is open to Bachelor, Honours and PhD students
