About the Author

Stephen T. Garnett (Charles Darwin University) is an authority on the conservation of threatened birds.

Judit Szabo is a research fellow at Charles Darwin University working on Australian threatened birds. She has studied the effects of pesticides used in locust control on Australian birds. During the five years of field work and data analysis she became interested in issues with data collection and study design, which led to her work on optimal monitoring, bias associated with bird survey data, and using volunteer-collected data to detect trends in bird populations.

Guy Dutson is an independent consultant who has been researching threatened Australasian birds since rediscovering the Superb Pitta in PNG in 1990. He developed BirdLife International’s Pacific program, managing projects across the Pacific islands. Guy moved to Australia in 2006 to develop the Birds Australia–Rio Tinto Important Bird Areas program, and identified all Australian sites of global bird conservation importance. Guy has also worked with bird tourism in the Northern Territory and leads birdwatching tours across the country and globally.
