PHD Opportunity - Tackling Prey Naiveté in Australia’s Endangered Mammals

Project outline: Predation by cats and foxes is the chief cause of reintroduction failure in Australian mammals. Australian mammals are vulnerable to predation because they have not evolved effective defences against these introduced predators.
