Holsworth funds student's forestry research

PhD student Helen Stephens has been awarded a $7,500 grant from the Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment to support her research into the conservation value of aggregated retention for small to medium-sized mammals.

Helen is investigating the effect of forestry treatments (aggregated retention and clearfell, burn and sow) and habitat variables on mammal biodiversity, and species ecology, physiology and community structure.

The funding will provide much needed monitoring equipment and will help to cover travelling costs to her sites in the Styx and Huon valleys.
