The use of animal behaviour as a bio-indicator of restoration quality

This study aims to improve existing conservation and restoration monitoring protocols by assessing the value of animal behaviour metrics as tools for identifying key habitat components, and providing insight into the relative quality of restored and degraded habitat. To do this, the behaviour of the Red-Capped Robin in degraded woodland habitats on Rottnest Island is being studied.
