Project title:

Persistence of Spot-tailed Quoll under future climate and land-use changes

Project description:

Understanding how habitat loss and fragmentation impact species persistence under future climate and land-use changes is vital for conservation prioritization. This project focuses on developing spatially explicit metapopulation capacity models incorporating climate and land-use changes, to quantify the extinction risk of terrestrial fauna using the Spot-tailed Quoll as a case study. Aims include evaluating how quoll habitat and connectivity change over time and space, as well as assessing the dynamics of metapopulation capacity.
