Research Interests

Australia (the world’s sixth largest country) is a megadiverse country. Over time Australia has transformed ecosystems in order to meet the growing demand for food, fibre, and fuel.  This has led to species extinction, loss of key services such as water purification, and decreased protection from natural disasters due to the loss of buffers such as wetlands.  According to the International Union for Conservation (IUCN) Red List of threatened Species Australia has 8,488 threatened species.

To halt and reverse the decline of ecosystems requires the allocation of extensive resources and coordinated effort across all sections of government, business, and local communities. Nonetheless, unless action is taken in the near future we face a tipping point of numerous irreversible biodiversity losses.
