Abstract

This transdisciplinary case study provides new knowledge of the ecology of the rare and little-known Australian frog, Sloane''s Froglet. It examines the application of new knowledge to environmental practice, and explores factors enabling and constraining knowledge exchange and advocacy between researchers and practitioners. A conceptual framework, termed ''intentional ecology'' is developed to clarify the role of ethics and values in environmental research, facilitate the use of multiple methods and provide an imperative for conservation action.
