Population dispersal and genetic diversity of Australian crocodiles


This project focuses on investigating the population structure and dispersal of freshwater and saltwater crocodiles using genetic and genomic tools.

Program Type



This project investigates the level of genetic differentiation and gene flow within freshwater and saltwater crocodiles from northern Australia. This project will involve genotyping by sequencing (DaRT/RADseq) a large number of individuals/populations and estimating genetic population parameters. These datasets will be used as a framework to track the origins of unknown animals.
