Honours Student: Fine-scale interactions between native and invasive cavity nesting birds in Australia
In 2015 I completed a dual degree of Science and Journalism majoring in Ecology at the University of Queensland. I am now an Honours student at UQ working with Associate Professor Salit Kark. In my project, I will be looking at small scale interactions between native and invasive bird species around cavity trees. The Indian Myna (Acridotheres tristis) will be the focus of my studies. By comparing interactions in different locations I hope to be able develop an understanding of factors that promote the spread of this invasive species.
