Benjamin Scheele

Research Fellow in Ecology, Australian National University

I am an applied ecologist working in conservation and landscape ecology at the Australian National University. My field research focuses on investigating how and why species, and populations within species, exhibit variable responses to emerging threats. I emphasize testing and refining ecological theory, while also working closely with conservation practitioners to inform management. I use insights generated from empirical research to identify mechanisms underpinning species declines and to develop macroecological theory regarding species decline.
