A/Professor Anne Goldizen
Anne Goldizen's research interests focus on vertebrate social systems, including mating systems, social networks, cooperative breeding, parental care patterns and communication, and on conservation biology. She has carried out and supervised long-term studies of social and mating systems on wild primates, birds and macropods. Other studies have focused on endangered or potentially threatened species, including bridled nailtail wallabies, brush-tailed rock-wallabies, black-faced impalas, pademelons and black mongooses and have related aspects of species' behavioural ecology and genetics to their conservation and management. Current studies are based mostly in Queensland and Namibia, including studies of individual differences in sociality and social networks in eastern grey kangaroos and giraffes.
