Profile

Bonita holds a BSc (1st Class Hons.) in Conservation Biology and Environmental Management from The University of Western Australia, and has been involved in the research and management of inland aquatic ecosystems for over a decade. Under the guidance of Andrew Storey and WRM principal ecologists since 2010, Bonita has gained extensive experience in water/sediment quality monitoring, baseline aquatic biota surveys and environmental impact assessments across a broad range of wetland types, from arid-zone salt lakes to high-altitude tropical forest streams. She is proficient in a range of statistical analyses (uni- & multi-variate) and interpretation of biological data, and has led numerous projects in remote and difficult locations for industry and government clients throughout Western Australia. Bonita has authored/co-authored over 40 technical reports and is highly experienced in species-level invertebrate taxonomy, with particular interest in the taxa collected from WRM’s Papua New Guinea surveys, which are largely unknown to science.
