4 December 2009 (AGM)

Monash University – Clayton

7.00pm – 10.00pm


The 2009 AGM features a talk from Jane Melville from Museum Victoria.

Jane’s research interests combine field studies with a variety of molecular genetic analyses to study population biology, systematics, evolutionary ecology, and speciation in reptiles and amphibians. Currently, her research is primarily aimed at investigating the evolutionary processes and patterns that shape current communities. Whilst her research focuses on agamid lizards, Ishe has recently undertaken a project investigating historical and current population genetics in south eastern Australian frogs.

Jane is also involved in other ongoing projects include the molecular systematics and evolution of Phelsuma geckos, the Cordylus genus and central Asian agamid lizards.

A review of this meeting is in Odatria  #5.
