Media Release: Mapping the thylacine’s mysterious loss from mainland

Ancient DNA extracted from fossil bones and museum specimens has shed new light on the mysterious loss of the Tasmanian tiger (thylacine) from Australia’s mainland.   The University of Adelaide study, published in the Journal of Biogeography, traces the history of thylacine populations over the last 30,000 years.   The researchers from the University’s Australian […]

Testing extinction hypotheses for the Tasmanian Tiger using multi-species ‘metamodels’

Biodiversity Month Guest Post by Thomas Prowse. Thomas is a post-doctoral fellow in the Global Ecology Laboratory of the Environment Institute. His research focuses on extending individual-based models to reflect complex biological systems, by integrating information from disparate fields such as population biology, climatology, epidemiology and predator-prey theory. At a time of accelerated species loss, […]
