Ecology of Koonamore Reserve
The Koonamore Vegetation Reserve has been protected from grazing and monitored for nearly 100 years.
In addition to the accumulated information, several research projects require fieldwork including differences in spatial heterogeneity between grazed and ungrazed areas.
Study terrestrial plant ecology
Our research focuses on applying ecological knowledge to address management and restoration of natural vegetation.
We focus our work on arid lands and Mediterranean-type environments; the last including woodlands, grasslands and wetlands in the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Our approach always includes a strong conceptual framework and rigorous experimental design to investigate ecological issues ranging from the theoretical to the applied.
How do we feed the world’s growing population? How do we save our wildlife from extinction? Got an idea that will build a brighter, greener world?
Australian high school students are invited to submit a short video about one of Australia’s big science challenges.
