Congratulations to Tom for receiving The Stearns graduate research award. This is an annual award chosen by the ESEB & the Journal of Evolutionary Biology (JEB) editorial team for the best paper by a graduate student published in the journal for the year. Tom received this award for his paper “Mother’s curse and indirect genetic effects: do males matter to mitochondrial genome evolution?” (https://doi.org/10.1111/jeb.13561).
Marty’s project exploring the effects of artificial light on trophic chains in Eucalyptus woodlands has now received funding from three separate organisations: Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment (funding the field experimental set up and laboratory processing); Ecological Society of Australia Student Research Award (covering costs of transportation to field sites and sampling equipment) and Field Naturalists Club of Victoria Environment Fund (purchase of Audiomoth bioacoustic recorders). Congrats Marty and massive thanks to three wonderful organisations supporting original research in Australia!
Ashton has received funding from the Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment for her research examining the function of nocturnal song in the willie wagtail. She will use this funding to buy supplies necessary to maintain a banded population of willie wagtails along with travel costs associated with her fieldwork.
In 2016 Gareth received a travel grant from the International Society for Behavioral Ecology to present research on the effects of artificial light at night on cricket mating behaviour at the ISBE meetings in Exeter. 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.
Congratulations to Liz Milla for receiving two travel awards and two grants in 2016. She received the ABRS Travel award to attend International Congress of Entomology, Orlando, and the F.H. Drummond Travel Award in July. She also received a grant from the Australian Lepidoptera Research Endowment and a Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment grant.
In March Jo received a grant from the Robert Johanson and Anne Swann Fund to present at the 2016 Artificial Light at Night (ALAN) conference in Romania and meet with researchers in Berlin. She also received another Holsworth grant to further investigate the biological impacts of artificial light at night in crickets.
Annie was awarded a Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment to investigate how artificial light at night affects the circadian rhythms of black swans.
Jessica has just had her first paper accepted in Animal Behaviour. Congratulations Jessi!
Yasaman was awarded a Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment to explore in more detail the effects of The evolution of facultative parthenogenesis in the Australian spiny leaf insect, Extatosoma tiaratum.
