Minimizing the cost of environmental management decisions by optimizing statistical thresholds
Environmental management decisions are prone to expensive mistakes if they are triggered by hypothesis tests using the conventional Type I error rate ( ) of 0.05. Expand

The impact of fire and dogs on Koalas at Port Stephens, New South Wales, using population viability analysis
The Port Stephens Koala Phascolarctos cinereus population has been regarded as one of the strongholds for Koalas in New South Wales. This study applied population viability analysis to investigateExpand

Monitoring temporal trends in spatially structured populations: how should sampling effort be allocated between space and time?
Estimating temporal trends in spatially structured populations has a critical role to play in understanding regional changes in biological populations and developing management strategies. DesigningExpand

General rules for environmental management to prioritise social ecological systems research based on a value of information approach
Globally, billions of dollars are invested each year to help understand the dynamics of social ecological systems (SES) in bettering both social and environmental outcomes. However, there is noExpand

A Bayesian mixture model for estimating intergeneration chronic toxicity.
Understanding toxic effects on biological populations across generations is crucial for determining the long-term consequences of chemical pollution in aquatic environments. As a consequence, thereExpand

Conventional methods for enhancing connectivity in conservation planning do not always maintain gene flow
We investigated the ability of prioritizations to maintain gene flow when they are generated using conventional methods for promoting connectivity in conservation planning, such as minimising fragmentation, penalizing fragmentation, and representing species in contiguous areas of suitable habitat.

Evaluating natural resource management strategies under parameter uncertainty: An outranking approach applied to koala conservation
We demonstrate an outranking approach for a decision problem in which we evaluate a range of alternative koala (Phascolartos cinereus Goldfuss) habitat protection strategies for a population in New South Wales, Australia. Expand
