Research interests

Ecology, conservation and management; plants and vegetation

I have two streams of research: use of plant functional traits to organise, analyse and model plant species response to environment and disturbance; and applied plant and vegetation ecology for conservation and managment. Throughout I use statistical and process models to guide thinking and decisons.

  • Plant ecology
  • Plant functional traits
  • Native vegetation management
  • Ecological modelling

Research projects

  • Predicting tree species responses to environment and drought with traits
  • Trait-based models of Eucalypt species distribution
  • Post fire growth in shrubs and relations with traits
