Dr Kara Youngentob

I completed a PhD in Environment from the Australian National University in 2010 and a MSc in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida in 2004. My main interests are in applied ecological research to inform and improve wildlife management and conservation decisions. I am also a big fan of science communication. My current project for the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub involves investigating how forage quality might influence landscape use by koalas and other leaf-eating animals. I am also developing tools to map the quality of forage for browsing herbivores using airborne hyperspectral remote sensing data. In addition, I contribute to the development of derived remote sensing products, such as forest canopy chemistry maps, for the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). My past research has encompassed a wide range of projects, which include investigating habitat fragmentation and edge effects on wildlife populations, contributing to the development of the Centre for Land and Water Research at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), and conducting surveys to study interactions among people, nature, and urban design.
