Welcome to the personal research website of Dr Robert A. Davis. Rob is a wildlife ecologist based at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia and an adjunct lecturer in the School of Animal Biology at the University of Western Australia.

Rob undertakes applied research focussing on theIMG_0406 ecology and conservation of vertebrate wildlife. The main objective of my lab is to investigate and provide solutions to the ongoing loss of biodiversity. We use field studies and modelling on a range of taxa to answer questions with clear applied outcomes. Wildlife lab projects range in scope from feral predator ecology to threatened bird ecology and are supported by the interests and expertise of my lab members.


Fieldwork occurs in Western Australia and overseas. The lab has ongoing collaborations with colleagues at Uppsala University, Sweden; Otago University, New Zealand; Australian National University, Canberra; and both Murdoch University and the University of Western Australia in Perth.

We invite you to check back regularly for the latest news, publications and other offerings from the Wildlife Lab. We’d love to hear from you and you can contact us here:
