The quest for the ‘missing’ frog
How much frog and reptile diversity is out there? How does this diversity form? How do we discover and describe this diversity? How can we conserve Queensland’s diversity?
Dr Conrad Hoskin takes you on an adventurous journey to discover and re-discover some of Queensland’s most fascinating frog and reptile species. An ecologist and conservation biologist, Dr Hoskin has discovered spectacular new species, rediscovered a frog species long thought to be extinct and defined how new species can form.
Join The Brisbane Institute and The University of Queensland as Dr Hoskins presents the 4th annual Steve Irwin Memorial Lecture.
In this presentation Dr Hoskin will reveal the spectacular diversity of reptiles and frogs in Queensland, the amazing discoveries still being made, and the efforts to conserve this diversity.
