Anne's research interests focus on vertebrate social systems, including mating systems, social networks, parental care patterns and communication, and on conservation biology. I have carried out long-term studies of social and mating systems on wild primates, birds and macropods. Other studies focused on endangered or potentially threatened species, including bridled nailtails, brush-tailed rock-wallabies, black-faced impalas, pademelons and black mongooses and have related aspects of species' behavioural ecology and genetics to their conservation & management. Current studies are based in Queensland and Namibia and include individual differences in sociality and social networks in eastern grey kangaroos and giraffes.
