Using computer modelling to save endangered species


Dr Damien Fordham, an ARC Future Fellow working in the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute was recently featured in the University’s new research blog.

The causes and consequences of extinction, and developing predictive tools to be able to implement effective conservation strategies are major themes of Damien’s research.

The conservation computer modelling tools that he has developed are being adopted by scientists world wide.

“I have been able to develop a wide network of international and national collaborators in research areas ranging from conservation and evolutionary biology to climate science paleoecology. The establishment of this network has helped provide me with the multidisciplinary skill set needed to generate world-leading research on the ecological consequences of global change,” says Dr Fordham.
