He was also awarded a travel grant from the Ian Potter Foundation to present at ISBE 2016, meet with colleagues in the UK and the Netherlands, and conduct field work in the Netherlands on the effect of artificial light at night on ground-level invertebrate communities at the LON site. On top of this Gareth received a Robert Johanson and Anne Swann Award for Australian Faunal Research from the School of BioSciences to continue his research on amphibian adaptation to saline environments (the subject of his PhD), specifically examining the adaptability of an invasive frog in South Australia.
