Assoc Prof Ajai VyasMy main interest is consequences of Toxoplasma gondii infection in its intermediate hosts. Toxoplasma is a protozoan parasite that infects humans and a variety of livestock species. This parasite causes fetal death in sheep and goat when contracted during early and mid-phase of the pregnancy. Most of Toxoplasma infections in herbivore hosts are initiated through food contaminated with cat fecal material. This is because cats are essential for the sexual phase of Toxoplasma life cycle. Cats are infected when they eat small rodents infected with Toxoplasma, leading to shedding of stable oocysts into the environment in cat poo. Thus the transmission from small rodents to cats provide a bottleneck to Toxoplasma transmission; one that could be useful for control of Toxoplasmosis. I am interested in how Toxoplasma circumvents this bottleneck through biochemical and hormonal subterfuge. I have also shown that Toxoplasma can be sexually transmitted from males to females through ejaculate. My current research project is situated in Kangaroo Island south of Adelaide. Sheep in this island show remarkably higher rates of Toxoplasmosis compared to mainland South Australia. Conservation authorities are planning to remove all cats from Kangaroo Island in the next few years. This should lead to disruption of Toxoplasma life cycle which needs cats. My goal is to confirm that scientific prediction by measuring epidemiology of Toxoplasma in small rodents and sheep before and after cat removal. This project is in collaboration with the University of Adelaide.

Asst Prof Eleanor SladeI am an ecologist, whose research focuses on the challenges and opportunities associated with conservation, management, and restoration of tropical forest landscapes. I am particularly interested in “the little things that run the world”, and my research focuses on the links between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, with a particular emphasis on linking invertebrate diversity and community interactions. Much of my research has focused on using dung beetles as model systems but I have worked on a range of taxa from dung beetles, moths and woodlice to hornbills and small mammals in both tropical (Malaysia, Philippines, Belize) and temperate (UK, Finland) environments. I am also interested in the development of policy and best practice in the oil palm industry and I am working with government agencies and NGOs engaged in land-use planning in Sabah, Malaysia.
