Dr Hugh Davies

Charles Darwin University

Hugh is a NESP funded post-doc at Charles Darwin University working with the Tiwi Land Council to better understand the threats to native mammal populations in northern Australian savannas, and the how we can effectively conserve these species through remedial management actions. The project is primarily focussed on whether the manipulation of vegetation structure through fire management can mitigate the predation pressure imposed on small to medium sized native mammals, especially by feral cats.
