Wildlife detectives: Research, discovery and exploration at the Australian Museum

Rebecca Johnson

Lunchtime Seminar Series

Duration: 51:50

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Topic/s: wildlife

Dr Johnson will describe the breadth of AMRI research and how the museum utilises their natural science collections. These collections are some of NSW’s oldest and most valuable research infrastructure collected through the Museum’s journey of discovery, exploration and education. 

Whether it is policing the illegal rhino horn trade, discovering the vampire flying frog, conserving the koala through genome sequencing, or protecting Australia’s borders from invasive species, the research undertaken at the Australian Museum, our nation’s first museum, has never been more relevant or translational.
