Personal profile


My two main areas of research are vegetation dynamics in response to climate change, timber harvesting, thinning and cattle grazing and the development of spatial modelling techniques which integrate recent advances in generalised dissimilarity modelling (GDM) with traditional remote sensing techniques such as aerial photographic interpretation, satellite imagery segmentation and automated pattern recognition.

Current priority areas include:

  1. Quantifying rainforest canopy tree productivity in a changing climate
  2. Comparison of growth responses of shade tolerant versus intolerant rainforest seedlings to elevated temperature and CO2 conditions
  3. Comparative field growth response of rainforest trees, saplings and seedlings and phenology to a changing climate
  4. Rainforest leaf traits and their relationship to litter fall, decomposition and equilibrium biomass in cool temperate rainforest
  5. Integrating contemporary tree growth measurements and dendrochronology/wood geochemistry to reconstruct the palaeoclimate of Gondwana World Heritage rainforest stands in northern NSW
  6. Infra-red camera monitoring of threatened fauna in response to fire and feral predators,
  7. The development of methods for contrained classification of vegetation communties
  8. Bryophytes and lichens as fine scale indicators of climate variability in Nothofagus moorei rainforest
  9. The conservation management of rare tree ferns in south eastern Australia
