The aim of this project is to develop methodology to reveal if crocodiles are present or absent f
Dr Hamish Campbell
Hamish Campbell is a RIEL Senior Research Fellow and leader of the Movement and Landscape Ecology Laboratory (MLE-Lab) at Charles Darwin University. He is also the Senior Lecturer in Spatial Sciences for the School of Environment and runs the CDU Drone School.
Hamish is interested in studying the spatiotemporal relationship between animals and their environment. In particular, what drives animals to move, how do they respond to environmental heterogeneity, and why they select certain areas over others. Understanding how animals move through space and time is fundamental to ecological processes, and Hamish’s research aids in the management of Australia's invasive and threatened species. His current projects study the movement and migration of birds, reptiles, mammals, and fish across Northern Australia. He currently sits on the Commenwealth Threatened Species Scientific Committee, which advises the Australian Government on matters of national environmental significance.
