A unifying theme in Olly’s research is the use of DNA and “genomics” to provide scientific insights that support environmental management.

Over the past 15 years Olly has researched such diverse topics as the ecology of fox control, change in marine food-webs, the relationship between farming and biodiversity and more.

Olly’s work has provided several important technical innovations in applied ecological research, has been featured in university textbooks, and informed government policy.
