integrity of native ecosystems in human dominated landscapes

I am an applied plant ecologist interested in the integrity of native ecosystems in human dominated landscapes. Consequently, my research involves plant reproductive biology, native vegetation management, ecological restoration, monitoring design and the evaluation of conservation interventions.

  • Native vegetation management
  • Evaluation of environmental interventions and programs
  • Monitoring design
  • Pollination ecology
  • Restoration ecology
  • Ecological modelling

Research projects

  • Adaptive management of threatened ecological communities
  • Determining reproductive age limits in long-lived Allocasuarina luehmannii
  • Population viability analysis for keystone habitat species
  • Expert opinions of native vegetation offsets; trading size and quality
  • Vertebrate herbivore impacts on threatened species and communities
