Can genetics improve conservation outcomes?
This event will occur at the Plympton Community Centre, with virtual attendance also (using Zoom communications software)
SA Museum Assoc. Director, Dr Steve Donnellan will talk about how conservation outcomes can be improved by the use of molecular genetic analyses. Genetic data contribute to species discovery, surveying for biological diversity, choosing appropriate populations for translocations and for monitoring how populations can adapt to rapid climate change. Steve will use examples from his work on marsupials,birds frogs and fishes from South Australia, Australia and New Guinea.
