Paul Oliver is a Curator of Vertebrates at Queensland Museum and Lecturer at Griffith University. He works on the evolution, biogeography and conservation of Australian animals (in short - how are animals related to each other, where do they live, why do they live there, and how do we ensure they keep living there!). He has published over 80 papers and described nearly 70 new species.
