Research

Mine and my team’s main area of research is Regional Ecosystem mapping for the Einasleigh Uplands and Cape York Peninsula bioregions of Queensland, Australia. This is part of a state wide project by the Queensland Herbarium (DSITI) to map Regional Ecosystems across the whole of Queensland at 1:100,000 scale. Other areas of related research and involvement are:

  • Bioregional coordinator for Einasleigh Uplands bioregion and Cape York Peninsula bioregion

  • Biodiversity assessment

  • Conservation land management

  • Vegetation mapping and monitoring of National Parks in south west Queensland
