Awards and Prizes

Research Award

CSIRO Publishing has proudly published Emu – Austral Ornithology on behalf of BirdLife Australia since 2001. As part of its commitment to this partnership, CSIRO Publishing sponsors the Emu – Austral Ornithology Research Award.

Administered by BirdLife Australia as part of its suite of distinguished awards and grants, the Emu – Austral Ornithology Research Award bestows up to $5,000 annually to support projects with a strong research focus.

Applications are open to Honours, Masters and PhD students who are BirdLife members, for funding toward current research being undertaken at an Australian tertiary institution. Applications are encouraged in the areas of ecology or behaviour of Australian birds; evolution of native or invasive birds within Australia; and modelling of ecological processes of relevance to Australian birds.

Applications are assessed on the quality and significance of the research project; the novelty and strength of the science; the justification for a grant in the context of the overall budget of the project; and the track record of the student and the likelihood of the project achieving its objectives.

For more details on how to apply for the Emu – Austral Ornithology Research Award, visit BirdLife Australia or email research@birdlife.org.au.


  • 2014: Amy Slender, Flinders University
    Assessing gene flow between and across two diverging populations of the threatened Thick-billed Grasswren (Amytornis modestus) in the arid zone
    The objectives of this project are to identify patterns of gene flow between two Thick-billed Grasswren subspecies; to quantify ecological differences between their habitats in relation to patterns of gene flow; to test if song differs between the two subspecies; to compare their morphological traits and sexual dimorphism, in relation to patterns of gene flow; and to quantify differences in blood parasite prevalence or diversity between the two subspecies.

  • 2013: Amanda Edworthy, Australian National University
    Causes of decline in Forty-spotted Pardalotes
    The objectives of the project are to quantify threats to forty-spotted pardalote populations and assess their relative importance; to identify barriers to dispersal and establishment of populations in unoccupied habitat; and to determine the future viability of forty-spotted pardalote populations.
