Spatial ecology; raptor ecology and biology; mitigation and species conservation in urbanising environments
Dr Bronwyn Isaac lectures in the School of Biological Sciences at Monash University, and is a member of the Research Ecology Group. Her research focus is centred on the ecology and conservation of raptors within altered environments. In particular, determining resource distributions and other influences that play a role in the occurrence, spatial distribution and persistence of raptor populations. In identifying the drivers and hazards for fauna within modified landscapes, we can aim to produce biologically resilient systems that can coexist alongside human populations. Her research outputs have been disseminated at international and national levels, but also to relevant government stakeholders and the community.
While Bronwyn’s research passion is the ecology of raptors, she also thinks that is increasingly important to deliver innovative teaching programs to advance the discipline of science and science communication.
