BSc(Hons), PhD Qld
Geoff studied the anatomical aspects of bud formation and resprouting of hoop pine, a native conifer, for his PhD. Since coming to CSU he has concentrated on the ecology of the native vegetation of the South West Slopes, the way that eucalypts and various other tree species recover from fire and various aspects of the structure and function of the Wollemi Pine. He has recently investigated the anatomical structure of several weed species.
Geoff has also developed several interactive web-based applications to help students with the basics of plant structure. He has received several teaching awards, both national and international, for these resources.

He also has developed interactive web-based tutorials and tests to help students with their understanding of plant structure. Please visit the CSU Virtual Herbarium website to explore:
With Dr Bruce Kirchoff (University of North Carolina) he has developed 'Visual Learning - Agricultural Plants of the Riverina' to help agriculture and veterinary science students learn to recognise major crops, pasture plants, weeds and poisonous plants.
