Richard Reina’s Ecophysiology and Conservation Research Group

What we do:

Our research revolves around studying animal responses to challenges from their environments and from human activity to understand how they deal with different these stressors. Most of the work is on marine animals including sharks, rays, penguins and turtles, but we have also studied frogs, crocodiles, lizards and small marsupials. The purpose of this research is to apply our improved knowledge to the conservation and management of affected species and ecosystems.

Our research group is based at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia but we undertake the work in many different places.

These are some of our current projects:
