The NCSSA Conservation Biology Grant aims to assist honours and post-graduate level student research into aspects of conservation biology.
Research priorities are:
- ecology and/or conservation biology of:
- declining or threatened species or communities
- less studied organisms (e.g. fungi, invertebrates)
- other native species not currently recognised as threatened nor belonging to a group of less studied organisms (e.g. common species)
- abundant native species
- invasive species
- ecosystem function and interactions between species
- positive and/or negative impacts of environmental and/or anthropogenic disturbances (e.g. fire regimes, water flows, invasion of exotic species, ecotourism, abundant native species, habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, habitat restoration and species utilisation)
- management of threatening processes
- other gaps in current knowledge
Up to $2,000 per successful applicant.
Students are encouraged to apply for supervised project funding at the Honours Degree, Graduate Diploma, Masters Degree and PhD levels.
Support from a research institution is required.
