* Koalas and disease - what's really going on out there?

Steve Phillips

This is a presentation that formed the basis of a 2016 seminar at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Hosted by Prof. Peter Timms, the intent of the presentation was to examine some of the ecological data from areas supporting 'diseased' koala populations, aspects of which are contrary to what me might otherwise expect to see if disease per se was a key driving force of koala population decline. The intent of the presentation was to stimulate further discussion on koala disease and its impacts on free-ranging populations as well as the need for some new paradigms.
