About me

P. LentiniI’m an applied ecologist and part of the Quantitative and Applied Ecology Group at the University of Melbourne. I  focus on conservation in highly modified human-dominated landscapes. At the moment I’m looking into the issues of human-wildlife conflict, urbanisation and threatened species, biodiversity offsetting and land-use change. I work on projects which involve bats, bees, marsupials and birds, and am also quite partial to lovely temperate woodlands.

I use quantitative tools and modelling approaches such as population viability analysis, spatial conservation prioritisation, and species distribution modelling to understand how the management decisions we make today will impact on wildlife populations into the future.
