Effects of Grazing, Fire and Invasive Species on Yakka Skink.
16 SEP 2022
10.00 AM - 11.30 AM

The yakka skink, Egernia rugosa is endemic to Queensland and is listed at the state and national levels as vulnerable. The yakka skink is a poorly studied species, with little is known of its distribution, habitat requirements, ecology and the impacts of key threatening processes. This study will gather important information on yakka skink distribution, habitat and ecology, establish a better understanding of the species response to key threatening processes, such as grazing, fire and invasive species and investigate the genetic structure of the species at a landscape scale. This information is vitally important for making sound and targeted threatened species and land management decisions.
