Lane Cove National Park

Lane Cove National Park occupies a bush land valley in Northern Metropolitan Sydney, Australia, extending along the Lane Cove River from East Ryde, below Fullers Bridge, Chatswood to Turramurra and Pennant Hills. Lane Cove National Park is now open at all entrances following major improvements, which finished in late 2007. The Park is totally surrounded by urban development, with approximately 2000 properties adjoining the Park. The lengthy urban/bush land interface and narrow v-shaped valley places the conservation of the Park under considerable immediate and sustained threat, e.g. from weed infestation, storm water pollution and land encroachments.

The Avian Behavioural Ecology Group is part of the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University. Research in the group is based on a variety of Australian passerines in the wild and captivity in an effort to understand the diversity of species in terms of behaviour and morphology. Current work focuses on the evolution of social behaviour in colonially breeding species such as the zebra finch and fairy martin, true coooperative breeding in two arid zone species, the apostlebird and chestnut-crowned babbler, and speciation and the evolution of polymorphism in the grass finches of Northern Australia. In addition to addressing questions of basic Behavioural Biology, they have a parallel interest in applying the concepts and techniques of Behavioural Biology to practical conservation and in particular are making inroads into understanding the decline of the endangered Gouldian finch.
