Martine Maron

I am Professor of Environmental Management and an ARC Future Fellow at The University of Queensland, as well as Deputy Director of the Threatened Species Recovery Hub. My fellowship research focuses on biodiversity offsets, exploring the long-term biodiversity consequences (both intended and unintended) of current offset approaches in order to test how they influence the long-term persistence of biodiversity, as well as examining the risks and consequences of the introduction of offsetting into the conservation policy mix at national and international levels. I also work on interspecific competition and woodland bird ecology, with a focus on how the aggressive noisy miner can be managed to restore woodland bird assemblages. With lab members and other collaborators, I work on drivers of landscape-level species richness, resource distribution and persistence of bird species in patchy landscapes, and how climate change will influence the persistence of species through its influence on resources.
