Presented by Marian Weaving on Friday November 24 at 7.30 pm at the Senior Citizens Club, McMillan Street, Anglesea
Marian Weaving completed her PhD at Deakin University in 2016. With a strong interest in the effects of urbanisation on wildlife, in particular nocturnal birds, the focus of her research was to investigate how Tawny Frogmouth ecology and behaviour is impacted by land use change along a gradient of urbanisation.
Marian will talk about the research she conducted in and around forest, urban fringe and suburban sites in Melbourne presenting key findings that include the distribution of Tawny Frogmouths, their reproductive and spatial behaviour and how urbanisation is impacting on their genetic profile.
Aside from presenting the scientific results of her study, Marian will talk about the interesting and amusing aspects of undertaking nocturnal field work in urban areas and how the Tawny Frogmouth is in her opinion an important advocate for creating suburbs that support both a growing human population and Australian wildlife.
