Product description

About the Author

Felicity Bradshaw majored in Zoology and Biochemistry at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and later completed an MSc on the reproductive endocrinology of the Rottnest Island quokka. Prior to retiring in 2003, she was the Senior Research Officer in Professor Don Bradshaw's Endocrine Laboratory at UWA. She was responsible for developing and implementing assays for a range of hormones in studying the physiology and energetics of a wide variety of free-ranging animals (lizards, snakes, birds and marsupials). What started as a 'hobby' developed into a major research programme on the energetics and reproductive biology of the honey possum, which feeds entirely on pollen and nectar. With some 42 scientific publications, her most recent in 2011 and 2012, are major reviews of the rôle of the hormone, progesterone, in marsupial reproduction, and the field and laboratory physiology of the Honey possum. Her commitment to the understanding and preservation of the unique biodiversity of south-west Australia has been transmitted to Primary School students, with an educational Resource, 'Be a Bush Scientist'. Integrated into the curriculum, this programme takes teacher and students through an investigation of natural areas outside the classroom, using the framework of exploring, explaining, elaborating and evaluating their findings. A Tale of Two Honey Possums is used to engage the student in the necessity of understanding the vital link between an animal and its environment.
