The quest for the ‘missing’ frog

How much frog and reptile diversity is out there? How does this diversity form? How do we discover and describe this diversity? How can we conserve Queensland’s diversity?

UQ alumnus, Dr Conrad Hoskin takes you on an adventurous journey to discover and re-discover some of Queensland’s most fascinating frog and reptile species. An ecologist and conservation biologist, Dr Hoskin has discovered spectacular new species, rediscovered a frog species long thought to be extinct, and defined how new species can form.

Join us in our fourth Steve Irwin Memorial Lecture as Dr Hoskin reveals the spectacular diversity of reptiles and frogs in Queensland, the amazing discoveries still being made, and the efforts to conserve this diversity.

Take a sneak peek into the froggy world of Dr Hoskin in this video archive from ABC’s Catalyst program, filmed in 2009.
