Dennis Peel – A Bird’s Eye View of the History of Fairfield, 4103, Queensland.
Dennis will draw on historical writings and images to illustrate the changes in habitat for birds in an inner-city suburb and the associated implications for bird populations over the last 200 years. What will it mean for the next 100 years?
Leo Biggs – Raptor monitoring techniques: a global review and South East Queensland comparison.
Leo will begin his presentation with the results and implications of a global systematic review of raptor monitoring since 2000.
This will lead into a comparison of novel and traditional monitoring techniques for recording raptor diversity, population dynamics and diet. Over the past 12 months as part of the Raptor Monitoring Techniques Project, Leo has conducted over 500 hours of observations throughout South East Queensland. He will discuss the preliminary results from the use of different monitoring techniques.
