Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr Geoff Heard specialises in the ecology and conservation of wildlife in fragmented landscapes, including rural and urbanising landscapes. His research seeks insights into the population dynamics of threatened fauna (particularly herpetofauna) to inform conservation management initiatives such as habitat protection, restoration or creation.  His PhD and postdoctoral research have been instrumental in policy development for managing Southern Bell Frogs in urbanising landscapes, including the use of his population model for the species to spatially prioritise $60M in future wetland construction in Melbourne’s newest suburbs.

He is currently looking at the change in the lifespan of frogs as a result of Chytrid fungus invading Australia.
