Where to look for a Discovery, Mariella Herbeisten at TEDxMacquarieUniversity

23/12/2013 17:54:30

Mariella Herberstein is the head of the behavioural ecology research group in the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University in Sydney. Her research has a strong focus on spider behaviour and evolution including sexual selection, mating strategies, signaling and deception, and she is a strong advocate of using spiders as model species. However, her research group conducts research on an enormous range of Australasian invertebrate species from mantises to assassin bugs to harlequin bugs to grasshoppers. Originally a native of Austria, Mariella has been a lynchpin of the Australasian evolutionary scene for nearly 15 years, but still bares a strong yearning for the mellifluous tones of the Eurovision song contest.
