Research

Mine and my team’s area of research is Regional Ecosystem mapping and classification for the Cape York Peninsula, Einasleigh Uplands, Wet Tropics and Brigalow Belt North bioregions of Queensland, Australia (an area ~40 million hectares). This is part of a state-wide project by the Queensland Herbarium (Qld Department of Environment and Science) to map and describe Regional Ecosystems across the whole of Queensland at 1:100,000 scale. Other areas of related research and involvement are:

  • Aligning Australian and international vegetation classification approaches
  • Vegetation ecology
  • Biodiversity assessment
  • Conservation land management
